VOA Voices

Who are the voices of VOA?

They are veterans and adults with developmental disabilities. They are families facing homelessness, moms and dads struggling with addictions, friends who need answers about HIV. They are donors and volunteers who lend a helping hand. They are the voices of our community, coming together.
