Welcome Back Volunteers!

Updated: Thursday, May 27, 2021
As of May 27, 2021, COVID-19 restrictions for volunteers at the St. Francis House have been lifted, the Board of Directors announced. There are still some things volunteers should be aware of before coming to volunteer. They include:

  • Volunteers who have been vaccinated do not need to wear a mask while volunteering. Volunteers who have not been vaccinated are asked to wear a mask, but this will be up to the volunteer to do this.
  • Volunteers must complete a liability waiver form before serving

We want to thank all of our volunteers who have served during the height of the pandemic. We apologize for any inconveniences, but we appreciate your understanding and willingness to come in and serve our guests.

Feel free to complete the volunteer interest form so Tom, our Volunteer Coordinator, can contact you and explain what future volunteer opportunities are available.

Volunteers are an integral component in the operation of St. Francis House. Whether you're an individual, family, small group or large group, volunteer opportunities are always available. Here's a glimpse of some of the available opportunities.
