Volunteer

Here are a few of our volunteer needs and a description of the duties and tasks involved. If any of these looks like something you would like to try give us a call at 817-774-2993 or email eileen@77.104.144.22.

Receptionist: 10:00am-4:30pm one day a week shifts

Answer phone
Light office work
Hand out applications
Greet children after school
Set out snacks
Help with homework, if needed.
Receive donations
Occasionally help with meal preparation

Our current receptionists are Miss Sylvia and Miss Kay.

All of the above duties are on an as needed basis. Most of the time, your primary responsibility is to be on-site so our managers can use this time to run errands. You would also be there to take in donations and answer questions from “drop-ins”. If you can’t commit to the full shift, any time within that 10:00am-4:30pm period would still be appreciated. We are very flexible with our scheduling. You are not locked in to a certain day and we will definitely work with anyone’s personal schedule.
Transportation: We need several people who could volunteer one day a week to be available to provide transportation to our residents from 9am to 3pm. You would be transporting Lodge residents from the lodge to medical appointments, government assistance offices, classes, interviews, Spirit of Sharing and/or Operation Blessing. You can call the lodge the day before your chosen day and find out if you will be needed or not. Residents must provide 24 hour notice of need to be eligible for this service. You could either remain with them or return at a designated time to pick them up.

Cooks: We need individuals or groups to cook or provide a special dinner occasionally for the residents. Especially needed are Saturday and Sunday evening meals.

Teachers/Mentors:
We need volunteers who are willing to lead classes [one time seminars or a short term series] on such topics as parenting skills, dressing for a successful job search, developing a budget, filling out job applications, anger management, and cooking low cost healthy meals. Classes would either be during the day or in the evening. Schedule based on your availability.
