Volunteer

Each year hundreds of volunteers support Community Services Agency of Mountain View and Los Altos in nearly every program and department. Opportunities range from working in our onsite food pantry, to escorting a homebound senior to important appointments. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the needs of your own community. We have individual and group opportunities for ages 12 years and older.  Sign up today!
