About

Mary Centre is looking for a volunteer friendly visitor for an adult male with a developmental disability. The volunteer would provide opportunities for social interaction by meeting with the individual 1-2 times per week to go out for coffee, go on walks, do arts and crafts, play pool, watch movies, or go to the YMCA. Individual and volunteer will work together to plan their visits.

We are looking for a volunteer who has great communication skills, is friendly, outgoing, and patient. Experience with developmental disabilities is beneficial, but not a requirement.

-Statement on Catholicism
-Individuals Rights
