Get Involved

Volunteers are the back-bone of our operations.  Without their dedication to our organization and generouse help, we could not provide the services we offer today.  There are several opportunities available within Community Pathways of Steele County, Inc.  Our volunteer opportunities are for 3-3.5 hour shifts.  You can work 1 day a month, 2 day every other week, or 1 day a week.  The amount of time is up to you.

We believe that our volunteers have a rewarding experience that brings care and compassion to others and to themselves.  We are proud that we serve all who are in need!

To Volunteer, stop by our location at 155 Oakdale Street SW in Owatonna or call us at 507-455-2991
