We offer excellent training, flexible scheduling, and the opportunity to be meeting and working with other wonderful people in the community. For a responsible and rewarding volunteer experience, please call Laurie Eisele at 223-6112 for more information.

There is a warm welcome for volunteers at Advent House; without them we simply could not operate. After reviewing the opportunities, we hope you will consider joining us.
