Global Movement Extends Help to Millions Anytime and Anywhere There is a Need

Whether serving in their own communities or on the other side of the world, Scientology Volunteer Ministers extend unconditional help in service of the motto, “Something can be done about it.” The program was initiated in the mid-1970s by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard after observing that crime and violence in society were rising in proportion to the decline of religious influence.


Volunteer Ministers Telling the Story

The Volunteer Minister story since 9/11 is told in many ways: in the words of those helped in their time of greatest need; by rescue workers seeking help to carry on; by media reporting on natural and man-made disasters; and by Volunteer Ministers themselves.
