Volunteer Opportunities

Clients come to Pendleton Place for many different reasons, but all need nurture and support during a period of crisis in their lives. In addition to our highly trained staff, volunteers enrich our client's lives by sharing their experiences, skills, and talents. People like you can strengthen our programs just by donating a few hours of your time. Whether you are participating directly with our residents, are mentoring a young adult, helping sort donations, working on a special project around the facility, or helping with our fundraising events, you are helping to provide support.

There are many ways you can help Pendleton Place as a volunteer. Our goal is to match your talents and interests with the needs of our programs in order to create the best experience for both you and our children.
