Make a Difference in Someone’s Life
Jewish HomeLife depends on our dedicated group of volunteers who are all are very special people. Each day, our volunteers bring joy, cheer, diverse interests and life experiences into our network of care – and more importantly – into the lives of our residents, families and patients. Volunteers contribute to the quality of life throughout the Jewish HomeLife network and play in a key role in making our communities and our services so extraordinary.
What You Get.
It’s no doubt our volunteers benefit everyone person they touch within our network. So, we strive to return the favor offering valuable experiences for them.
By volunteering, you can make good use of your unique gifts and talents. Whether you have a few hours a week or one hour a month, there is a volunteer opportunity for you within the Jewish HomeLife Network. And if you’re student interested in gaining practical experience in aging services or a teen who needs to fulfill a community service requirement for school, we can work together to make your experience rewarding and educational.
We also have a very active Auxiliary, whose 1,100 members generously give their time to making our residents feel cared for and loved with special events and regular activities they look forward to such as weekly manicures, magical evenings, senior Olympics and holiday celebrations.
