Work near the front door to buzz in visitors and residents and answer questions or summon staff. Some volunteers prefer to work with a friend or family member, but that is not required. Volunteers typically sign up to work once or twice a month. We also need occasional subs to cover for vacations and illness.

Available shifts are :

  • 4 to 8 pm
  • 8 pm to midnight

There is a brief training/orientation.

Many volunteers bring a book, craft, or work to do during any slow periods.

However, if you like, you can help in other ways if there is a lull. (Optional!) Examples of assistance:

-- Computer or paperwork tasks

-- Working with a resident on GED prep, writing a resume or fillng out a job application, preparing a menu and food shopping list, or other individual needs that help the person become self-sufficient. This type of work can be scheduled outside of front desk duty as well.
