Volunteer

Community Garden – Passage Home’s community gardens help our families access healthy food options and provide educational and job opportunities for local youth. Helping us maintain the gardens is a great way to give back. Whether you are a part of a large group or volunteering as an individual we are always looking for help planting, harvesting, weeding, seeding and other garden tasks throughout the year. Working in the garden is a wonderful team-building exercise for any size group. If you are a large group, please take a peek at our calendar and then reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator.

Administrative Support – Retired, re-wired, or just want to put your top-notch administrative skills to good use, please consider spending a few hours with Passage Home helping us with the back end support that allows our programs to flourish.

Job Club – Work with adults enrolled in our workforce development courses Thursday’s from 1pm-3pm. Assist our clients on all aspects of employment resources, including resume writing, interview prep, job searching, and submitting applications.

Mentor – Our goal is to help families break the cycle of poverty and become generationally self-sufficient. For many of our clients, this is not always a straight path. Passage Home is looking for mentors looking to dedicate their time and share their knowledge. We need mentors who will form strong relationships with our adult clients and walk along their journey.

Property Management – Help Passage Home maintain all of our affordable housing units with projects such as painting, cleaning the exterior, gardening, interior cleaning/painting, apartment turnover, etc.

Angel Tree – Holiday traditions create lifelong memories and bonds for families. We are looking for individuals, places of worship, organizations, or anyone else who wants to create lifelong memories. We need donations of toys, holiday items, canned food, or anything else that will make the holidays special.

Adopt a School/Teacher – Our schools and teachers are woefully underresourced. Passage Home works with local school and educators to identify needs and help provide the resources necessary to provide an excellent education to our children. We are looking for organizations or individuals to donate traditional school and cleaning supplies.

We have countless volunteer opportunities at Passage Home and we look to utilize local expertise and talent to improve our programs. If you have any specialization, we can put it to good use at Passage Home and help you make a large impact on our community. All volunteer opportunities are coordinated through our appropriately named Volunteer Coordinator. Please contact them via email or 919-834-066 ext. 241.
