Office Support and Special Event Support

Every day The Maple Counseling Center benefits from volunteers who help in the office by answering the telephone and welcoming visitors and clients. Additionally, the fund development events in the spring and fall of each year as well as donor mailings are supported by volunteers. Because The Maple Counseling Center is a low cost provider of mental health services, we rely on volunteers to help us keep our expenses down while providing quality service.
