— ATTENTION —
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended ALL ONSITE VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES, both individual and group visits, until further notice. For information on virtual or off-site volunteer opportunities and in-kind donations, please Contact Annie Kennedy Director of Volunteer Services.
DROP OFF POLICY:
We are practicing contactless drop off for the delivery of goods, greeting cards, birthday treats or other items for our residents.
Please place your donation in a clean box or bag. Pull into the semi-circular driveway at our facility entrance. Engage your vehicle hazard lights, and call our receptionist at (804) 359-4093, or use the intercom system at the front door. Let the receptionist know you are dropping off a donation, and place the box or bag outside the main front door. Return to your car, and someone will be outside to pick it up shortly. If you are delivering a large item (wheelchair, furniture, etc.) please make arrangements in advance.
Stay safe and we look forward to when we can have you visit again soon!
Volunteer and help change lives.
Volunteers are the heart of The Home. They are our governing Board of Trustees, the Junior Board, and are made up of individuals, families, schools, businesses, and organizations that give their time and talents to better the lives of residents.
Resident Companion: Many residents need assistance with leisure activities such as opening mail, watering plants, strolling in the park, organizing their rooms, playing games and writing letters.
Computer Assistant: Some residents need help with simple tasks like checking email, updating social media, playing games and searching the web.
Community Outing Companion: Along with staff from The Home, you can accompany residents to concerts, movies and other cultural venues and historical sites.
Department Assistance: Our therapy teams welcome volunteers for their ongoing programs and special events. Contact Volunteer Director with specific programs and times.
Special Events: We host a number of events every year and are always looking for extra helping hands (see calendar and check our ‘other events’ page).
Share your talents: We’re always looking for individuals and groups to come in and entertain with music, education, magic and more. Contact our Volunteer Department to discuss the opportunity to be added to our calendar. See our calendar and sign up for our e-newsletter “Around the Home” for specific outings that request volunteer assistance.
Volunteers are an important part of our organization and provide essential services and loving care to our 130 residents. Please take a moment to read the following guidelines prior to completing the application:
- The minimum age to volunteer is 16, unless accompanied at all times by an adult.
- Anyone committing to volunteer one or more hours per week will be required to have an annual TB test. This test is administered by our nursing staff at no charge. If you have had a TB test in the last twelve months, or if you prefer to be tested by your own physician, you may provide a copy of the results to us in lieu of being tested by our staff.
- Weekend and evening assignments are limited to experienced volunteers only. If you volunteer on Saturday, Sunday, or after 5 p.m., you will be required to first complete six hours of supervised training during regular business hours.
- Participation in some programs requires additional training conducted by staff.
