On behalf of the Las Palmas staff, we want to thank you for your interest in our volunteer program. Volunteers are an integral part of our social service team and they help to fulfill our mission of empowering and supporting the residents living at our affordable apartment communities.

Our volunteer program started in 2005, and we are building our program one volunteer at a time. At many of our complexes, volunteers provide computer classes, senior supportive services, youth services, food distribution and health outreach. Each volunteer is screened and trained and becomes a valuable part of the Las Palmas team.

Volunteers are another link that help us provide services to meet the many and diverse needs of our residents. We thank you for your interest.
