The services our volunteers provide are invaluable. A core of about 100 volunteers contribute more than 10,000 hours annually. It is a gift that is impossible to quantify. Volunteers provide services that aid every aspect of our organization’s work — from administrative support functions to assisting with grief sessions and events, to maintenance, to learning how to become support group facilitators and actually working with our members. It is an amazing effort and we are deeply grateful for it.

Current Volunteer Opportunities
Kids Who Kare Meals
Provide a healthy meal for our Kids as they grieve their losses, and support their families. By providing a meal, you will ensure that the families are able to attend the Kids Who Kare group, without having to worry about hungry bellies and meal times. This is a great opportunity for small groups–your book club, Sunday school class, scout troop or work team to do together. You can drop off the meal the day of, or stay and serve. You decide what works best for you and your team.
A much-loved and much-used older home like The Christi Center needs periodic maintenance–everything from changing hard-to-reach lightbulbs to installing a security light. If you are handy–we can use you!
Healing Garden at the Christi Center
After the loss of a loved one, people need time to heal. The Healing Garden at the Christi Center was created to provide a space for those who find healing through gardening, and you can help bring calmness and reflection to the healing process.
Join the Healing Garden Team by sharing your time and energy, or donate so that we may grow our garden with flowers, plants, and/or building materials. Read more about the Healing Garden and previous workdays on our blog.
Current needs include a regular volunteer to stop by once or twice a week to ensure the plants are getting the water they need to thrive!
You may also choose to donate materials so that we may grow our garden with flowers, plants, and/or building materials.Do you have a service group that would like a Healing Garden workday? We have regular maintenance days Spring and Fall.
