Become a volunteerVolunteer opportunities are available for people ages eight years and older. Volunteers can give their time to Hattie Larlham by themselves, with a friend, family member or as an organization. For as little as an hour or two each week, volunteers can help make a difference in lives of the children and adults with developmental disabilities.
