Home Away From Home


hy Volunteer

Volunteering allows you to meet Goward House members and make new friends!

Can I Choose What I Do?

Absolutely, and perhaps you have skills you’d like to apply.

  • Tea Room
  • Front Desk
  • Program Facilitator
  • Woodlands
  • Gardening
  • Special Events


How Much Time Must I Commit?

That’s up to you! Most volunteer schedules consist of 3 hour shifts. Some volunteer weekly; others donate twice a month. The time period for certain volunteer tasks vary, depending on the activity.   You let us know what you can donate and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.

Will I be trained?

Of course. You will be trained by an experienced staff person or volunteer and shadow a volunteer on a number of shifts until you feel confident to do the job. If, during a shift, you have questions, the Administrator (Heidi Hodgins), or the Administrative Assistants (Marlene and Suzanne) are there to provide support.

How Do I Volunteer?

Simply contact the Administration Office at Goward House
