1-on-1 Companionship | Flexible Hours

One-on-one companionship -- even if just a few hours a month -- is very important for the people we support.  We want to give them the opportunity to socialize and feel like a wanted and needed person in the community. Plus, it's a lot of fun!  Volunteers can go for walks, shop at the mall, or watch movies.  What to do and where to go is left up to you and the person you are volunteering with -- your decide together!

Yard Beautification | Flexible Hours

It is a priority for us to keep the outsides of our group homes looking just as good as the neighbors' yards.  We always need volunteers to help rake leaves, pull weeds, plant flowers, trim bushes and more.

Painting | Job-specific Hours

Everything looks better with a fresh coat of paint!  We routinely have to paint to cover up wear and tear that occurs at our group homes.  Occasionally we also need outdoor paint jobs as well, which are typically completed in the fall.

Cookie Baking (Cookie Classic Event) | Flexible Hours (December)

The weather outside may be frightful, but the smell of fresh-baked cookies is delightful! We are looking for volunteers to help bake and frost cookies with the residents. Join us in creating sweet confections and celebrating the spirit of the holiday season.

Game Night | Flexible Hours

Whether it's a low-key night of Bingo or a rousing game of cards, we're sure you'll have a good time.  This activity is usually with a few of the people we support, and not 1-on-1.

Holiday Volunteering | Flexible Hours (Holiday Season)

If you are looking for a way to give back and spread some holiday cheer, then this is a volunteer position for you! We are looking for help with a variety of holiday activities including carolers to head out with our residents to sing, as well as bakers who can help our residents learn to make cookies.
