We need volunteers to assist with lawn and landscaping maintenance for our 1/4 acre facility that provides low-cost lodging to out-of-town patients and guests receiving care in Augusta Hospitals. Families have much to worry about when their loved ones are being treated for life threatening illnesses, but finding a place to stay shouldn't be one of them. For over 30 years the Comfort House has provided caregivers with a low-cost and safe lodging to stay while they take care of their family.
Volunteers must have their own lawn equipment and transportation. The entire yard is accessible enough for a riding lawnmower and is small enough for a push mower. Frequency: Weekly, however volunteers can choose when and how often they help out.
Located in Augusta, Georgia, Comfort House provides low cost short term lodging and supportive companionship in a home-like environment for families and caregivers of out-of-town patients receiving care at Augusta area hospitals. Guests may stay at Comfort House upon receipt of a referral from an area hospital. There are no restrictions on the basis of race, sex, religion or national origin.
The Comfort House is comprised of volunteers and is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt not-for-profit charitable corporation. It is supported solely by donations from churches, foundations, civic groups, businessess and individiduals, including former guests.
