HSW is a solely volunteer organization which depends on its volunteers to provide help and support for all members seeking services and/or to assist with administration and committee organizational needs. Our hope is that volunteers will make new friends and/or learn new skills while attending to the needs of others and the HSW organization. Volunteerism adds a tremendous bonus to one's life purpose!
HSW volunteers will be treated with respect and fairness at all times. They will be given the opportunity to participate in all Educational, Wellness, and Social events. All volunteers who work directly with members or members' data will have background checks. All volunteers will be covered with liability insurance paid for by HSW. In addition, drivers volunteering to drive others, will be expected to provide a copy of their drivers license and proof of motor vehicle liability insurance.
Volunteers may choose their own schedule and interest:
Specify the hours and days of the week available (no weekends or evenings required)
Choose which services you want to provide (transportation, light home maintenance, friendly visits, technology support, administration assistance, and Thoughtful Foods)
You will be given a 48 hours advanced notice of services needed unless it's an emergency
You will not be expected to volunteer more than two times a month
Steps in becoming a volunteer:
Volunteers will fill out a Volunteer Application and mail it to the address listed below.
Volunteers will meet with a volunteer coordinator to review the application and discuss services they are considering to volunteer for.
It is mandatory that all volunteers attend a training and orientation session. These sessions cover privacy and confidentiality tips, communication ideas, and what you might expect in return as a volunteer.
