Volunteers of America of Kentucky
OverviewVolunteers of America was founded in 1896 by social reformers Ballington and Maud Booth. They envisioned a movement dedicated to reaching and uplifting the American people. On behalf of the organization, the Booths pledged to go wherever we are needed, and do whatever comes to hand. That declaration continues to guide Volunteers of Americas outreach efforts today.
The name Volunteers of America was selected by the Booths to signify that the organization was comprised of people voluntarily choosing to help others. Then, as now, our services are delivered through a partnership of professional staff, volunteers and other community supporters.
Volunteers of America opened its first location in Kentucky in 1896 the same year Ballington and Maud Booth founded the national organization bringing food, medicine and comfort to people not served by other charities.
