Volunteer

At Neighborhood House, volunteers are essential to achieving our mission. Volunteers bring enthusiasm, expertise, and share diverse perspectives that foster a community of mutual enrichment. This past year alone, volunteers provided invaluable service by working to support hungry families, educate new immigrants and refugees, create safe spaces for youth, and move families from survive to thrive!  CLICK HERE to learn more about how volunteers fit in our organization.

Here at Neighborhood House we have one-time, short-term, and on-going volunteers.  We have opportunities for individuals and groups as well as Service Learning/Internship opportunities.
