Become A Volunteer

VOLUNTEERS PROVIDE INVALUABLE SUPPORT, BOTH IN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE, WHICH ALLOWS FAMILIES TO SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER.

All current volunteers are able to sign up for shifts on the Volunteer Calendar.

All volunteers who serve in the house must pass a background check prior to their first shift.
