Avery Dennison Foundation president Alicia Procello Maddox oversees grantmaking opportunities and morale-boosting programs at the California-based company. Outside of her work there, Alicia Procello Maddox is active in board service with organizations including Volunteers of America.
Volunteers of America is a national human services organization dedicated to helping people of all walks of life who find themselves in vulnerable positions. Its many programs help veterans, people experiencing homelessness or substance abuse, and families in need from all backgrounds.
Volunteers of America offers a variety of services for families, all of which focus on stability and self-empowerment. In addition to temporary and permanent housing assistance, it provides an array of health and educational resources. Families members can get help with basic literacy, English as a second language learning, or college admissions. They also have access to parenting and general life-skills classes through Volunteers of America.
