Life Enrichment Volunteers work with seniors, age 55 and older to help them connect with the things that bring them joy! As a volunteer with the Jewish Family Service of St. Paul, you can share your passions and life experiences to support and joy to our clients' lives! Our current needs include individuals who can help clients in these ways:
Support a Senior
Support a senior in our program through providing transportation to their essential events and appointments; making a phone call once or twice each week to offer socialization, a friendly voice and listening ear, helping with projects in their homes, and offering companionship and an opportunity to venture out into the community. We want to utilize your interests and strengths to help our seniors live their best, most engaged lives.
Do you have a particular interest or skill that you can use to assist JFS? Let us know - we may be able to customize a project just for you!
B'yachad Holiday Gift Program (Together)
To ensure joyous Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations, JFS provides gifts and holiday ritual items to families and individuals in need who are referred to our agency. Volunteers collect, sort, wrap and deliver gifts and ritual items to over 150 people each year.
Twin Cities Para-Chaplaincy Program
Provide spiritual listening and comfort to unaffilitated or disconnected Jewish individuals at home, in long-term care settings, or in other settings in the community.
We also have many more opportunities available to do one-time volunteering with clients or in the office! You will gain as much as you contribute!
