Welcome to One Life Counseling! We at One Life Counseling are so pleased you have decided to join our team of compassionate volunteers helping make this a more supportive environment for those in need.

Your efforts help to provide necessary services to our community by allowing those we serve to live a
healthier, happier life.

Please check if your organization has an "Employee Match Program", which may have two parts: (1) "Donation Match" to match cash donations, and (2) "Volunteer Match" to reward volunteer hours with a cash match.

Volunteer Handbook

This volunteer handbook serves as an introduction and guide to One Life Counseling. Within the handbook, you will find basic information about One Life Counseling’s mission, goals, guidelines, and your rights and responsibilities as a volunteer. It also includes valuable information, policies and procedures, and tips to keep you safe.

We will update this handbook as needed and welcome your input and feedback.

Please do not hesitate to contact anyone at One Life Counseling with any questions or concerns.

We will also post the latest updated PDF version of the complete volunteer handbook under the One Life Counseling website’s documents tab.
