On May 1, 2021, Give an Hour’s Campaign to Change Direction initiative’s website will be folded into the Give an Hour website. We are merging the websites to make it easier to find information about all of our programs.

Give an Hour®’s mission is to develop national networks of volunteer professionals capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. Since 2005 we have focused on providing free and confidential mental health care to those who serve, our veterans, and their families. We have since expanded our efforts to address the mental health needs of other populations. Through the generosity, compassion, and expertise of Give an Hour’s skilled volunteers, we are able to increase the likelihood that those in need receive the support and care they deserve.

Save the date: A Week to Change Direction is May 10-16, 2021

We are proud to announce that Give an Hour® has received Top Ranked recognition from GlobalGiving, The Best in America Seal from America’s Best Charities, and the 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency from Guidestar! Attaining these ratings indicates that Give an Hour exceeds industry standards and outperforms most nonprofits in our area of focus. These are exceptional designations from GlobalGiving and Guidestar that sets Give an Hour apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.
