About

Thank you for your interest in Harbor House of Rochester! We are looking for friendly, welcoming, people to staff the house evenings and weekends. The most important skill you need is simply to be a warm person who likes to be with others and make them feel at ease. We provide temporary lodging for people who have traveled to Rochester because a loved one is being treated at a local hospital for a serious medical condition.Many of these people don't know anyone in Rochester and are frightened and feeling very displaced. Guests stay at Harbor House while they are in our city to support hospitalized family members with a serious medical condition. Due to the unpredictability of health issues, it is impossible for us to know when guests will come or go from the hospital. Therefore you may have quiet periods during your shift. During this down time, we ask that you help keep our house in good condition by performing some housekeeping duties. Your level of commitment is up to you. You can sign up for weekly, bimonthly, monthly shifts or as a substitue. Volunteers are needed 7 days a week. The shifts are approximately 3 hours in length. We can also be somewhat flexible for weekend shifts. Call us and talk about this opportunity - You'll be surprised how your presence can make a huge difference in the life of someone who is dealing with a medical crisis.
