Volunteer Opportunities

Due to the success of ACCESS an expansion of the program beyond the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has engendered a need for addtional volunteers.  In addition to the ongoing need for volunteers as listed below there is currently an opportunity for more specialized activities.  Click here to see the latest volunteer opportunities.

RV, Host Homes & Hotel Assistant

Do you have RV experience? Support ACCESS by assisting the Service Chair in responding to requests for RV and home stays, RV maintenance, recruiting and training home host volunteers and working with local hotels to provide vouchers and/or reduced rates.
