DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 HEALTH SITUATION, WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW VOLUNTEERS. PLEASE SEE BELOW TO SEE EXAMPLES OF PAST OPPORTUNITIES, AND CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization.
For every successful service we offer, there are many volunteers who work behind the scenes providing their skills, time, and energy to make our services possible—all while connecting with other like-minded individuals.
We are always open to new interest from anyone who wants to be a part of what we’re up to. We have a variety of volunteer positions—from special events and specific projects to weekly scheduled shifts. Come join us!
