  • Be the Legacy -Celebrating 50 Years in Santa Cruz County

    156 views 2 months ago
    For 50 years the doors at the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County have been open county- wide and tens of thousands of our neighbors have walked in to offer their time and talents, or get the help they needed. Across years and issues, together we have created something profound and enduring.

    So much has changed in those 50 years. We’ve been through 4 names and dozens of locations. We’ve grown to engage 12,000 people a year, our Impact Programs now provide services to 9,000 local people, and our Mobilization Team supports 500+ nonprofit, school and local public partners.

    But at our heart, we are still about what happens when hopeful people work together to transform our community for good.
