Volunteering at Community Outreach
Volunteers and interns play a key role in our ability to serve others in our community. Without them, we would not be where we are today and our capacity to serve would be nowhere near as great.
You can volunteer in these areas:
• Medical/Dental Clinic Staff (3+ month commitment preferred)
• Mari’s Place (our nature-based childcare center)
• Social Services (working within our shelter)
• Building Operations/Administrative Support
Please fill out an online application form. You may also come to the front desk of our building and fill out an application in person.
For more information about volunteering and group volunteer opportunities, contact our Volunteer/Intern Services Coordinator, Kyle Janssen, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 541.758.3000.
