The Scientology Volunteer Ministers program (VMs) was established by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, in 1976. Some 100,000 VMs in 120 nations helped more than 1.6 million people in the last year alone, making the Scientology Volunteer Ministers the largest independent relief organization on Earth.

With the motto, "Something CAN be done about it," Scientology Volunteer Ministers teams helped at Ground Zero after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 in New York. They served in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India after the 2004 South Asian tsunami. In fact, in countries around the world, volunteer ministers are on hand at forest or brush fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods or man-made disaster.

Not only have the Scientology Volunteer Ministers been awarded citations for their relief work in 119 severe disasters, they also provide disaster response training to police, fire fighters, medical professionals, Red Cross and members of other volunteer organizations. They specialize in restoring calm, organizing the resources available, and providing maximum help to relief workers and victims of disaster.

L. Ron Hubbard said, "A Volunteer Minister is a person who helps his fellow man on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others." The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in Vienna accomplishes this by providing courses, workshops and seminars based on the Scientology Handbook. They help people cope with any situation they may have in their lives. Those wanting to salvage a relationship, help their children, improve performance at work, improve their ability to study , assist someone with a drug or alcohol problem or generally do better in life are invited to visit the Center and get the help they need.
