Family Service Volunteers: help with delivering programs and services at RMHC. They help with light administrative work at the family services front desk by greeting families and visitors, answering phones and accepting donations. They help our families directly by answering questions or providing assistance to them when needed. Family Service Volunteers may also help us maintain the common areas, deliver programs, stock supplies and light housekeeping work. Family Service Volunteers will meet many RMHC families while they are working to ensure the house is always tidy and fresh. There are a variety of roles to choose from.
Family Program Volunteers: act as partners to our Home for Dinner Program. Family Program Volunteers help keep our kitchen tidy, organized and ready for any group coming to prepare a meal for our families. These volunteers greet and assist groups while they are preparing food so they utilize the kitchen to its highest potential. Family Program Volunteers provide groups with a tour and information about our house. Generally these volunteers would be available from 1:30-6:30pm when there is a group scheduled for a Home for Dinner and need to be a reliable, outgoing, and friendly.
Home Improvement Volunteers: Our house is very large with 17,000 square feet of space for our families. With such a large house there are many fix-it projects that come up. Volunteers who like to use their hands will work closely with our Family Service staff to help with tasks on our home improvement list. Our Home Improvement volunteers assist with minor repairs and maintenance of a clean, safe and orderly environment for families, volunteers and staff. Home Improvement Volunteers will meet many RMHC families while they are working to ensure the house is in perfect condition. Home Improvement Volunteers are scheduled with flexible times during the daytime hours.

GROUP & ONE-TIME OPPORTUNITIES –
Home for Dinner Program : With the help of corporate teams, community groups, and individuals (up to 4 people), RMHC offers families a home-cooked meal 4-5 times each week. Groups plan the menu, purchase the ingredients and prepare the meal in our fully equipped kitchen. This allows families to find comfort, nourishment and the joy of a shared meal with more time spent with each other.
Just Like Nan’s Baked Goods Program : Nothing feels like home more than the smell of fresh baked goods. Individuals and groups ensure Our House is always stocked with special treats fresh from the oven, Groups (up to 4 people) provide the ingredients and bake on-site, so when families return from a long day at the hospital, they can help themselves to a treat or two.
Special Day Celebrations : Just like home, preparations are made to ensure, birthdays are celebrated, everyone gets treats at Hallowe’en and visitors like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny arrive on schedule. Your group is invited to help enhance our special occasions or provide daily activities such as arts and crafts, story time, massage therapy, music during dinner and much more. The possibilities are endless. If you have a talent you’d like to share with our families, please let us know.
