Make Wellness Calls! Volunteer Wellness Calls help Heights and Hills staff monitor the needs of older people waiting for services with weekly targeted and friendly check-in calls. Volunteers can choose how many calls they make from week to week, and receive on-going support. Must be over 18.

Join our Special Project Helpers! Special Project volunteers are ready, willing, and able to volunteer in a wide range of capacities across our programs that their schedule allows. Flexibility is key to how this volunteer role works! Volunteers will receive occasional emails from us (4-6 per month) asking for volunteer support for a variety of upcoming activities and needs including but not limited to: grocery shopping for clients, equipment pickup and drop off, flower deliveries, and more. Volunteers can choose how often they help and in which neighborhoods. To get involved, fill out our volunteer application and register to attend a 1-hour required training.
Upcoming Special Projects Trainings:
NOTE – A completed Volunteer Application and attending a training is required for both Wellness Caller and Special Project Volunteers.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Heights and Hills!
We continue to re-evaluate our volunteer efforts during this pandemic. Please check back often for updated information.
