Most local RESOLVE programs and services are run by dedicated volunteers who are experiencing, or who have experienced, the same life crisis you are facing. Our volunteers graciously donate their time and are the "key" to our region's continued success. If you have found our services as helpful as many others have, and if you would like to give something back to RESOLVE, please consider becoming a volunteer. Volunteering is a good way to meet new people and can be therapeutic. No previous experience is required for many of the positions, and if you are new to the infertility area, volunteering can be a comforting experience. We have many exciting volunteer opportunities with varying levels of time commitment. Most can be done from home according your own schedule. We appreciate any time you have to give. Your help will allow RESOLVE to continue providing our valuable service to you and others in the infertility community. Come join our committed and fun group of volunteers! For additional opportunities, please contact email@example.com.
