Give the Gift of Your Time by Volunteering!

Give the Gift of Your Time by Volunteering!

Volunteering at New Hope is a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with amazing people who live full and beautiful lives, despite the challenges they face every day. We are constantly exploring ways to enhance community integration of those we serve, and volunteers are a vital part of making it happen.


We have opportunities for individuals, families, schools, corporations and organizations to make the gift of time count in big ways. We would be honored to create a volunteer experience to match your time and talents. Let us know how you’d like to be involved or browse the list of opportunities below.


Currently, our biggest need for volunteers are:
  • Teaching new skills to individuals served by New Hope such as fishing, knitting, cooking, music, art, and more.
  • Transporting the individuals served by New Hope to outings in the community, bible study, doctor appointments and other individual needs. Training is provided.
