The Volunteer Center of the Redwoods (VCOR) maintains the framework of support within which people of all ages and abilities can match their time and talents to opportunities for meaningful volunteerism in Humboldt and Del Norte counties. The Volunteer Center of the Redwoods works with individuals and organizations to support civic engagement, to connect volunteers to fulfilling options for service, and to assist and support community organizations as they recruit, train and manage volunteers.
In the event of a major disaster, the Volunteer Center of the Redwoods is responsible for categorizing volunteers and passing them on to the entity that needs them. If you are interested in signing up as a volunteer, please fill out the Disaster Services Volunteer Application and send it in to VCOR, 434 7th Street, Eureka, CA 95501. If you are 55 or over, we would appreciate having you fill out an RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) application as well. As a Disaster Volunteer, we will inform you about trainings and organizational meetings as they occur throughout the year.

- RSVP, focusing on volunteers 55 years of age and older;
- Drop of a Hat Brigade, offering short-term and one-time volunteer opportunities;
- Volunteer Driver Program, transporting Rio Dell and Eureka area residents 50 to and from health care appointments in Humboldt County.
