8-9 volunteers come each year for 11-12 month stays


Project Description: The Lukas Community is a residential community for developmentally challenged adults. Volunteers spend approximately twelve months living and working with the adult residents who have a wide range of abilities and handicaps. There is some work within the households (personal care of the residents, meal preparation, housekeeping as needed, etc.) and also outside the home in such activities as therapeutic gardening, Eurythmy, weaving, music, fitness activities, painting and crafts, to name a few. There are 17 residents, 10 staff members and 8 or 9 volunteers. Many of the volunteers come from outside of the US. Each volunteer has a private room and all meals, and monthly stipend for personal expenses.

Holiday and leisure time regulation: Volunteers have 3-4 weeks (approximately 20 work days) off depending upon the length of their service (12 months in most cases) and Lukas staffing needs. Vacation time is provided during our regularly scheduled winter and spring break periods when many residents are away. Volunteer vacations must be pre-approved by Lukas before making definite plans to be away.
