Throughout the year, H.O.M.E. welcomes volunteers for seasonal and ongoing projects as well as one-time volunteer opportunities.
In the fall and winter, we need groups of five to seven people to help weatherize homes. It is a huge help to seniors and it is fun and easy for volunteers!
H.O.M.E. strongly believes in bridging the generations. We believe that we all have a great deal to offer each other. Our Volunteer Program is looking for people of all ages willing to share their various skills and talents. Many of the older adults we assist have a wealth of wisdom and experience to share with the larger community.
Volunteering doesn't just help out those in need -- at H.O.M.E. we're confident that you'll gain insight, experience and a fresh world view after interacting with our clients and residents.
Each year many of our volunteers come in groups! There are many ways that you, your family, work colleagues or friends can volunteer at H.O.M.E. One group who painted in a senior's home wrote this, "Things went great today, Janet was great to talk to and really appreciated the help. We spent the last hour or so cleaning up and helping her put her kitchen back together."

For a number of years H.O.M.E. has worked in partnership with the Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC). They are a national non-profit service organization that provides men and women, most aged 50 or better, with opportunities to serve others—to address social injustice—and to transform lives. IVC was founded in 1995 when two Jesuit priests, Jim Conroy, SJ, and Charlie Costello, SJ, gathered a small group of retired men and women in DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia to explore ways to minister to those who were materially poor while also gaining spiritual growth through service. Now more than 500 volunteers serve in 17 regions across the US.
Ken Campagna has been a IVC volunteer with us for two years. Read Shedding Light in the Dark, an article about Ken and his work with H.O.M.E.
