MHA is a non-profit agency that seeks to promote the positive mental health and emotional well-being of Orange County residents, working towards reducing the stigma of mental illness, developmental disabilities, and providing support to victims of sexual assault.
Volunteering or interning is a very rewarding experience. If you are looking to be part of a nationally recognized organization with a highly regarded reputation in the Orange County community, then you have chosen the right place!
Not only does volunteering assist those in need, but it is also a way to receive valuable experience as well as current and relevant training in the human services field. Getting involved with MHA is a good way to meet other likeminded individuals and have access to possible career opportunities within the agency.
All interested volunteers/interns must fill out an application and complete the reference form, providing three references. Also, any volunteer or intern that works directly with MHA’s program participants must be fingerprinted and successfully complete a background check prior to commencing their position.
Example Volunteer Opportunities: Administration, Food Pantry, Program Specific, Fundraising/Community Outreach, and Special Events.
Internship Program Placements: Social Programs Middletown, Social Programs Newburgh, CORE Services, Orange County Crisis Call Center, Care Coordination, Sexual Assault Prevention and Advocacy Program, Community Engagement, and Housing Programs.
