In periods of disaster, Caring Choices works with its public and private community partner agencies deploying volunteers to other agencies. In addition, volunteers assist the center with communications, donation management, tracking resources, and general administration.

Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
