Volunteer Opportunities/How to Help

  • MA Responds - MA Responds offers health volunteers and non-health volunteers a chance to join a network of people who are trained and ready to respond when called to assist local health and safety officials in Massachusetts. Even people without health care training are encouraged to join, as non-health volunteers are also very useful during a response. Volunteers are provided valuable training free of charge, and they learn how to prepare themselves and their families during an emergency.

  • MA Contact Tracing Collaborative - Join to help reach out to contacts of confirmed positive COVID-19 patients to help reduce the spread of the disease.
