Radiant Health Centers is pleased to announce that it has been certified as a Service Enterprise by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.

By achieving this level of excellence and certification, Radiant Health Centers is now even better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers to meet its mission.
“Becoming a Service Enterprise has revitalized our volunteer program and better prepared us for the organization-wide expansion to our increased client services and programs,” said Tammy Nguyen, Volunteer Coordinator at Radiant Health Centers. “We received the much-appreciated guidance to reflect on our volunteer program and make the improvements necessary to evolve and improve our program.”
