Volunteers are a vital part of the services DOORWAYS provides to individuals and their families. Volunteers help us achieve our mission each day. As a volunteer with DOORWAYS you will give your time, energy, experience and skills to benefit people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

DOORWAYS needs volunteers to serve as:

Gardening Helpers. Help our keep our properties looking lovely or assist our clients as they grow their own food. Your green thumb makes a difference!

Activity Assistant. Assist our program managers by leading and participating in a variety of activities for clients, such as games, movies, crafts, karaoke and parties.

Personal Companion. Brighten someone’s day! Spend quality time with Supportive Housing Facility residents by visiting, participating in field trips, tutoring, assisting with letter writing, or hosting meals in the dining room.

Special Events Assistant. Help plan, coordinate, and participate in special events and fundraising activities that benefit DOORWAYS.

Cleaning/ Organizing Assistant. Help us clean up a mess! Do you love to file or have a group looking to get their hands dirty? Help our clients do some Spring cleaning or help organize our storage rooms. These small jobs help our housing specialists focus on giving our clients their full attention.

Administrative Helper. Help our offices run smoothly. Answer phones, file or greet clients. There are many opportunities to help our offices!

Tutor/ Mentor. Our offices help many families affected by HIV. Help our children with their homework. Your guidance helps them succeed.
