Come Volunteer With Us!

ATCAA is always looking for folks to come down and help out. A few exciting opportunities:


Would you like to provide a helping hand for homeless families transitioning into permanent housing? ATCAA’s Transitional Housing Program is seeking support for families who are trying to turn around their lives while living in temporary ATCAA housing. This will be a meaningful opportunity to develop a supportive relationship with a struggling family determined to meet their goals. You can make a difference! Please call Susz Lay, at (209) 533-1397 ext. 231 or send an email,


The Food Bank has a huge, energetic team of volunteers, helping to do everything from sort food, engage community members during food drives, pick up and drop off food to local distribution centers, and take part in the most powerful kind of outreach there is: sharing their experiences volunteering at the Food Bank with others. If you’d like to join the crew, give Food Bank Director Lee Kimball a call at 209-984-3960, ext 102, or drop her a line at There’s never a dull moment at the ATCAA Jamestown Food Bank!


Looking for a more one-on-one approach? ATCAA’s Mentoring Works Program is always seeking out new mentors. This rewarding opportunity to build a relationship with youth in our community benefits not only the young people being mentored, but invariably affects the mentor as well. Program coordinator Martha Golay will tell you that often the mentors feel the immediate benefit of working closely with the mentees even before the kids do! The program offers a variety of group activities, as well as suggestions for good one-one-one projects as well. If the sound of all that intrigues you, give Martha a call at 209-533-1397, ext 229, or send her an email at


If you’re still looking for a way to spend some time helping out the folks in your community, give us a call and we’ll let you know what opportunities have just popped up: in Tuolumne County, call 209-533-1397 and we will be happy to let you know what’s going on; in Amador, Cathy’s waiting to hear from you at 209-223-1485.


We look forward to seeing you!
