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.

“I love the volunteer work I am able to do for Help At Your Door.  It is a blessing to develop relationships with clients, hear how they are doing, and to share a little bit of my life with them.”


Volunteer, Help At Your Door


Do you have a group of co-workers or friends looking for a fun and meaningful volunteer activity?

We have a variety of options available:


Help recognize a senior’s special day by putting together a small bag or box of goodies that you provide. Suggested items include: candy, lip balm, hand lotion, pens or small note pads. Include a note sending your good wishes for their special day. Birthday boxes will be delivered with client grocery orders during the month of their birthday. Boxes should be shoebox sized or smaller, and can be wrapped or decorated for extra fun.


Bring out your artistic side by creating a variety of greeting cards that can be mailed or delivered to clients. We need cards to celebrate birthdays, send well wishes, and provide sympathy.


Help spread the word about our services to potential volunteers and clients while bagging their groceries at the store! You’ll bag and provide a brochure for customers; an information table staffed by knowledgeable outreach volunteers will be available for any follow up questions.

Help At Your Door staff and outreach volunteers are available for brief presentations to potential volunteers, seniors, associations, civic groups, faith communities and other community supporters. Contact (651)642-1892 for more information.
