Volunteer
Volunteers play a critical role at Neighborhood House, helping us help immigrants, refugees and low-income people overcome the challenges they face in everyday life. Our volunteers also enjoy a supportive workplace, satisfying work, and hands-on experience.

VIRTUAL/REMOTE ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES
Ongoing, regular volunteer opportunities allow you to build relationships with Neighborhood House staff, volunteers, and community members, while making a difference.

Read and Record Children's Stories: Video record yourself reading a children’s book. The videos will be uploaded to a Vimeo channel, and the links will be shared with families participating in Neighborhood House programs.

Actors for Early Learning Training: Neighborhood House has home visitors who are a part of our Child Development Department. Home visitors’ main goal is to support parents in promoting the optimal development of their children. We are working on developing a new video training for home visitors for which we need physical or voice actors.

Skill Sharer: We are seeking volunteers to engage with youth in grades K-12 to teach a new skill or activity. Some examples include: If you are a crafter and want to share out how to crochet, we can have a class on that! Professional photographers that can teach youth how to take expert photos with the phone cameras! The possibilities are endless in this remote setting. If reasonable, supplies can be distributed to youth to make sessions interactive.

EVENTS & ONE-TIME OPPORTUNITIES
Event volunteering allows you to make an impact in one day, or even a few hours, of helping to provide enrichment, resources, and FUN! to our local communities.  

Teambuilding: When we find new homes for our families to move into, we like to provide them with a starter kit of supplies, such as dish soap, towels, trashcans, cleaning products, etc. We are looking for a partner who is willing to acquire supplies and assemble the welcome baskets for newly housed families.
