Volunteers are a valuable resource to NPF Ohio, its staff and its community. A volunteer is anyone who, without compensation or expectation of compensation beyond reimbursement, performs a task at the direction of and on behalf of NPF Ohio.

Volunteers shall be extended the right to be given meaningful assignments, the right to effective supervision, the right to full participation and the right to recognition for work done. In return, volunteers shall actively perform their duties to the best of their abilities and adhere to the goals and procedures of NPF Ohio.

We are excited to be part of a national effort to raise awareness about PD while still being a local resource to improve the quality of life for individuals touched by PD.  With a greater access to national best practices, we look forward to strengthening and expanding our programs and services in our region.  One very important component to that will be to raise awareness and money through our FUNdraising events in 2016!
