Community

This is how we do business everyday.

VOA believes that our responsibility to the community continues long after the ribbon is cut. We are dedicated to giving back to our communities by contributing significant time and resources to volunteer work, philanthropy, and other efforts that help improve the world.

Through the work of our Community Service Committee, young professionals in our Associates Panel participate in formal volunteer activity that serves community health, education, and community affairs projects in the areas where our offices are located.
