The strength of Venture is rooted in the efforts of original “regular” individuals giving their time and caring to help create a unique place where dreams could become realities for individuals with developmental disabilities. That dream did, in fact, become real and over the past 40+ years Venture has provided consistent care and comfort to the thousands in our care in both our residential and day programs.

In the spirit of those founding “givers’, you too can offer time to volunteer with Venture Foundation. 

Opportunities exist all year long to help out on a wide variety of tasks, including administrative duties (mailings, email blasts, posting road signs), event support (preparation, promotion, ticket sales, event-day services, check-in, set-up, clean-up), as well as individual sundry in-house projects.

Any of our events may need help with these tasks, so whether you can offer a few hours or many, for a limited time or on a schedule – we can put you to work! Just let us know how you can help us help Venture.
