Aphasia Gives Back

Volunteering opportunities for People with Aphasia

Giving back to our community!

Just like everyone else, people with aphasia want to feel productive and useful, they want to give back to the community, but frequently, their langauge disorder can prevent them from returning to work or participating in most volunteering opportunities.  The Aphasia Gives Back program at Voices of Hope for Aphasia establishes a network of charities in our community that welcome people with aphasia. Members can volunteer in groups or individually.

“Volunteering has many benefits for individuals…people who volunteer experience higher self-esteem, are happier, and develop stronger social networks than people who do not volunteer.” – National Institute of Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR)


Voices of Hope for Aphasia members have volunteered as a group at thrift stores, homeless shelters serving meals, sorting food donations, and more. Recently, Voices of Hope members filled over 100 backpacks with essentials for kids entering foster care.

The Aphasia Gives Back program will expand those options through partnerships with local charities, hospitals, churches, and small businesses. To learn more about participating in the Aphasia Gives Back program, please contact us via email or by phone 727.249.1953
