Volunteers of America Los Angeles - Just in Reach
Currently serving as president of the Avery Dennison Foundation in Glendale, California, Alicia Procello Maddox oversees operations and provides strategic leadership for the foundation and its investments. As a businesswoman, Alicia Procello Maddox has been a member of several professional organizations, including current involvement with the Volunteers of America Los Angeles (VOALA).
Founded in 1896, the Volunteers of America Los Angeles was created to build communities and help strengthen families. The organization fulfills its mission by providing individuals and communities with the support and encouragement needed to build their own futures and develop their full potential through programs such as the Training to Work 2 program and the Just in Reach program.
The Just in Reach program was created to help individuals who are frequently incarcerated and often chronically homeless to find more permanent housing opportunities. The program combines the services of multiple agencies such as housing placement along with drug and alcohol treatment and mental health services to find housing solutions that give these individuals more security and stability in their lives.
