Although PaRC volunteers cannot directly interact with counseling clients due to confidentiality requirements, we do need volunteers to help with other types of projects, for example:

Are you highly organized? Good with paperwork? Volunteers at PaRC are able to assist our staff with various clerical needs. This is a vitally important position which allows our staff to focus all their energy and talent on our patients.
