Sign Up to Volunteer

As with all of our locations, we have a limited number of staff members and therefore rely on volunteers to donate their time and talents to bring comfort to our House.  Below are volunteer opportunities that are available:

Family Ambassadors

Family Ambassador Volunteers take regularly scheduled shifts in our House.  Volunteers greet families, answer questions, and help them acclimate to the House.  They help with the daily House operations as well.  Volunteers answer the phone, give tours, organize and restock the common areas, and much more.  This team is vital to providing a comfortable and clean ‘home away from home’.

Family Program Volunteers

Family Program Volunteers provide activities at the House such as arts and crafts, baking, story time, laughter therapy, music during dinner, theatre and much more.  The possibilities are endless for our Family Program Volunteers to share their time and talents to create a “daily diversion” for our families.

Meals from the Heart

Like many homes, the kitchen is the heart of our House.  After a long day at the hospital, many families are in need of a home-cooked meal.  Meals from the Heart volunteers work as a small group (limit 10 individuals) to plan the menu, purchase the ingredients and prepare the meal for approximately 15-20 people in our kitchen.  This great service allows our families to find nourishment and comfort by sharing a meal together.

Cookies from the Heart

There is nothing better than coming home to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the kitchen. The treats you provide will be a comforting snack for the 16 families that stay at our House each day to be near their child in the hospital.
