Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering your time is one of the greatest gifts you can give to others, and the satisfaction you’ll feel is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. At Mennonite Home Communities our volunteers are essential to our residents and staff. Their commitment helps to make our campus a quality place to live and work.

Whether you read to residents, visit with them or simply transport someone in a wheelchair, you will truly make a difference in their lives.
