VOLUNTEER

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Family Lifeline! Much of our success depends on the work of volunteers – caring individuals, and groups, who enjoy sharing their unique talents and skills in an effort to make life better for others. Whether you have a particular set of talents or are looking to gain some new skills, we will work to allow you to make the most of your volunteer time while helping others.  

 

Visiting Volunteers

 

Our Visiting Volunteers program is Family Lifeline’s signature volunteer opportunity. With this program, we strive to meet the social and emotional needs of some of the community’s most vulnerable population - older adults and persons with disabilities. Volunteers provide our program participants with companionship, outreach, and advocacy. Volunteers commit to weekly visits for a year. Dates and times are up to you and your friend. If you are someone who is interested in building a meaningful relationship that facilitates true companionship, this program is for you!

 

Volunteers receive formal training focusing on person centered engagement and sensitivity to the needs of individuals facing difficult life circumstances (e.g., health issues, grief, etc.). These vital supports you would be providing increase the opportunity for people to remain in their homes for as long as possible by reducing loneliness and isolation. 

 

Additionally, we have many other volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. Many of these are great projects for school groups, corporate teams or for teens who need volunteer hours!
