Volunteer hours are usually flexible (depending on activity and site), but are typically during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm), with a few exceptions.

Volunteers are needed for both 1-time and ongoing projects. Individuals are welcome as well as groups. Different programs have different requirements (background checks, TB testing, etc.).

What we are looking for in a volunteer:

  • A desire to be a caretaker for the most vulnerable members of our community
  • Good boundaries
  • Dedication and consistency
  • Non-judgemental
  • Enthusiasm
  • Cultural competency
