Volunteers are the heart of Help At Your Door’s non-profit services.
Help At Your Door volunteers assist with transportation, home support, and grocery assistance services in a variety of ways.
Looking for a hands-on volunteer experience that changes lives? Over 500 volunteers find purpose in giving back to their communities through Help At Your Door. From giving rides to painting projects and changing light bulbs, Help At Your Door’s volunteers step up to help seniors and individuals with disabilities maintain their independence and continue living in their homes.
We want to help you make a difference. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, flexible scheduling, social interaction with a welcoming community, and most of all, hands on activities.
Together, we make thousands of meaningful connections each year to ensure that those who have given to us are not forgotten.
