Volunteer Opportunities

GETTING STARTED

Potential volunteers participate in an interview with the Volunteer Services Coordinator and are given a tour of the home. After the screening process is complete, the volunteer is matched with the activity that reflects their interests, strengths, and desires.

 

PLACEMENT & TRAINING

Let us know what you'd love to do. Time, availability, current openings, and the volunteer's interests are key factors in determining a suitable and beneficial placement. Specific training & orientation is conducted by staff members. Police checks and TB tests are required.
