Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization.

We have ongoing needs for volunteers with a wide-range of skills and interests.

In addition, for those interested in leading our classes and/or programs, training is available for appropriate peers and family members who have participated in our programs and who are interested in giving back to others. The first step it to attend our programs and become a member of NAMI Rochester.

Meet our wonderful Office Volunteers


Andrea Moracco

I have been with NAMI for four years.  I took the Peer to Peer class and it helped me learn about my own mental illness.  I volunteer at NAMI two days a week, and am trained in Ending the Silence and In Our Own Voice.  I am also a trained Connections facilitator.  NAMI has truly saved my life.


Peggy Decker

I have been a member of NAMI for over five years.  My first class was Peer to Peer.  I also attend the Connections support group bi-monthly and volunteer in the office regularly.  Volunteering at NAMI has given my life more purpose and worth.
