Here at The Neighbors' Place, we have a small staff and rely on over 100 volunteers each month to help us assist our community. (NOTE: If you’re under the age of 18, we ask that you have permission from a parent or guardian.)
To get started, scroll down or visit United Way's Volunteer Connection to view some current volunteer needs. Contact Mallory, our Volunteer & Community Garden Manager, with questions. Mallory would also be happy to schedule a time to give you or your organization a tour of The Neighbors' Place!
