Volunteer

When we introduce people to our program, “How can I help?” is usually the response! There are a multitude of ways that you can help Freedom House – with your time, talents or your treasures. Words cannot express how much we have been impacted by the generosity of our community.

The first step in becoming a Freedom House volunteer is to complete the Volunteer Application. Once your application has been reviewed, you will be invited to attend an Orientation which lasts about 30-45 minutes and consists of a tour of our facility and a detailed description of each volunteer role to determine which role may be the best fit for you. At the orientation, we’ll also look into a schedule – this could be a one-time volunteer commitment or an ongoing one. We are flexible!

Just a few examples of Individual Volunteer Opportunities are:

  • Receptionist
  • Prep, Cook & Serve a meal
  • Teen Mentor
  • THRIVE Mentor: Join our team of coaches to assist in teaching our weekly classes – Financial Planning/Job Readiness & our Parenting Gathering
  • Housekeeping & Donation Sorting
  • Childcare
  • Yard Work & Maintenance
  • Holiday Opportunities
We also love having groups come to Freedom House. We ask that you try to keep the groups small – 15 people or less. But it’s possible we can accommodate larger groups on special occasions. Groups often:

  • serve meals
  • host a family program (crafts, movie night, or other activities)
  • have a service day (cleaning, donation sorting, yard work, etc.)

There is a different application process for groups, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator directly.
