VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES WITH HEALING HOUSE
***THE FOLLOWING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES ARE ON HOLD INDEFINITELY DUE TO COVID-19***
The Healing House is a place a homeless child or family member can go to heal after surgery. It is located on the near west side of Madison, just to the northwest of the UW campus, and provides recuperative care by trained staff and volunteers. The Healing House also provides guests with three meals a day, child care assistance and case management to end the cycle of homelessness.
Healing House Team Member
Healing House volunteers make a commitment to supporting a clean and healthy home atmosphere and engage in a friendly manner with both youth and adult guests. Volunteers assist with childcare, preparing meals, cleaning rooms, and supporting staff as needed. There will typically be no type of “normal” day, as it depends on the make-up of our guests. The ideal Healing House volunteer will be consistent, flexible, motivated, and caring.
Volunteers commit to at least two four-hour shifts a month, for at least six months. Shifts are offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Qualified volunteers have the opportunity to continue on after their six month commitment.apply now
