People volunteering time and talents are the lifeblood of the Miami Valley Women’s Center. Over 200 volunteers from all walks of life work diligently in every capacity – including peer counseling, discipleship programs, board membership, grounds keeping, cleaning, office administration, sorting baby clothes and much more.

Though blessed with a dedicated group of volunteers, the need for volunteers in every capacity remains great. Our goal is to schedule every abortion-minded client the same day we are open, but we need your help.
