COVID-19 Volunteer Opportunities

Pima County needs you. Arizona needs you. Help us save lives

COVID-19 Volunteers

The necessary and important role of home isolation to the COVID-19 response may leave many people feeling cut-off and isolated and looking for a way to get involved. However, under Governor Ducey's "Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected" Executive Order, volunteers are considered "essential workers." This page offers Pima County residents the opportunity to stay engaged and stay connected while also staying safe.

Getting Started

Individuals and organizations can follow the links below to either donate their time and expertise or supplies and materials - people with healthcare and medical training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are particularly in demand. If you are a student in a health field, learn about Team Students Assist American (SAA) below and how you can volunteer!

We greatly appreciate your willingness to help. Please be as detailed as possible with your credentials and licensing information as this will greatly help us place you as the situation advances. Also, please understand that many medical requests for volunteers will not be made until contingency plans are exhausted.

How To Volunteer

Pima County has teamed with the Arizona Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (AZ-ESAR-VHP) to offer volunteer opportunities through an online platform.

Not a "health professional"? That's okay! Use this same link. The system will sort you as you go through.

Look for the big blue button marked "Register Now", select Add Organizations, and choose Pima County:

Register yourself or your group in the ESAR system under the organization title Pima County

 Are you a student in a health field looking to volunteer? Team SAA has a registration option for you.
