About

Are you exceptionally outgoing and friendly? Are you able to jump right in and engage folks in conversation? Do you have a hobby or passion that you'd like to share, such as backgammon, chess, checkers, other board games? Perhaps you're great at arts and crafts, crochet, knitting or even embroidery? If so, our residents and staff can definitely use your enthusiasm! Socialization is a crucial component of our clients' therapy, allowing them to fluidly readjust to daily living, gaining the ability to communicate effectively, and allowing them the confidence to express their thoughts and ideas. You can help in this capacity simply by coordinating and implementing a Bingo night, a chess tournament, movie festival, card games, arts & crafts and more. This is a great opportunity for small groups of friends or coworkers! Locations are throughout the city. Some limited weekend hours are available.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to insure the integrity of the BRC volunteer program, as well as the well being of the clients we service, all interested parties must complete a New Volunteer Registration form and attend an orientation, prior to reeciving an assignment. Apologies, but we are unable to accept walk-ins.
