Volunteer your Time

Give Back, Get Back, & Make a Difference

Volunteers make a difference at JW House. We are a “hands on” cause that survives on the physical, intellectual, financial and emotional engagement of our community. We invite you to join us on a mission that matters and makes people's lives better every day.

Weekly House Volunteers

Every volunteer makes a difference in the lives of our guests. With a small staff, House operations are primarily run by weekly volunteers - from greeting guests, giving tours, answering phones, setting up for meals, food preparation (when necessary), and light cleaning. It is a truly rewarding experience to be able to support families who are going through a difficult time and provide them with the comforts of home.


  • Weekly volunteers are scheduled for one 3-4 hour shift (of the same time) each week and must be able to commit to at least 6 months of service.
  • "On-Call" shifts are also available if you cannot make a regular weekly commitment.
  • JW House volunteers must be 18 or older. In rare cases, we allow volunteers under the age of 18 if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Group and Corporate Volunteering

From food drives to trivia nights, every group activity helps us keep families together when they need each other most!

Groups and corporations can volunteer as well! Providing a meal at JW House is the most popular way to volunteer as a group. We also have options for corporate volunteering and team building.

Contact us at arifa@jwhouse.org for more information about volunteering as a group.
