Many of our residents are Veterans of WWII, Vietnam, and more. We are currently seeking Volunteer Veterans to interact with our Veterans. Only Veterans understand the experiences of other veterans. Our Veterans don't neccessarily want to talk about their military experiences all the time, they enjoy all conversation and companionship, and would offer an attentive ear to your story as well!
Available days/times to volunteer: Monday-Sunday from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
All volunteers are required to meet with the Director of Activities, and complete an application with a background check. This is done at no cost to the volunteer.
All individuals must agree to abide by all Avantara volunteer policies and procedures. Volunteers accepted into the pet visits program must sign a release of liability. Individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (who has filled out an application w. background check) at all times when on community grounds, no exceptions.
