Volunteer Opportunities

The Volunteer Program uses H.O.M.E.’s basic philosophy of people helping people through sharing and cooperation. We welcome volunteers who are willing to reach out and touch the lives of others through a sharing of work and self-giving. 

H.O.M.E.’s volunteer needs revolve around the seasons:

In the Summer there are group opportunities in construction and building repair, painting indoors and out, landscaping, gardening and the splitting and stacking of firewood. 

In the Fall one can help with the printing, folding and mailing of our bi-annual appeal, write a story for the fall newsletter, pitch in with the Backpack Program by either donating or sorting supplies and the splitting and stacking of firewood. 

As the Winter months approach, Wreath Season brings the chance to participate in our largest fundraiser by decorating wreaths to ship around the country or creating a beautiful centerpiece that will be mailed as a gift, help prepare a meal in our soup kitchen for the holidays, assist our Winter Coat Program with sorting or donating, and the splitting and stacking of firewood. 

The rejuvenation that comes with Spring brings about another appeal for donations and newsletter, after-winter repairs/touch-ups of the campus and the splitting and stacking of firewood.

H.O.M.E. is happy to have volunteer teachers, artists, and crafters who are willing to share their knowledge and skill with others during all seasons.

Volunteering at H.O.M.E. can fulfill community service and student service hours.

To contact the Volunteer Coordinator you can send an inquiry to: programcoordinator@homeincme.org or by calling 207-469-7961 extension 106.
