Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Santa Maria Community Services! Santa Maria’s 400+ volunteers give 15,000+ hours of service each year. We would not be able to provide services to over 4,000 individuals annually without your help and support. Santa Maria services including our health sites, health fairs, tutoring and more would cease to exist without the enormous community support currently sustaining these programs. Our volunteer partnerships are evidence of the strong community support Santa Maria is fortunate to enjoy. Join us in the mission to help families help themselves!
