Volunteers have always been at the center of the Charter House mission. In the beginning, and for more than a few years, it was an all-volunteer effort. But we gradually added professional staff to meet the needs of our clients and to deliver state of the practice services in the areas of casework and counseling and organization management.
But volunteering is still deep in our DNA. Volunteers help the Meals program with food donations, meal prep, deliveries and serving meals in our dining room. We also train volunteers to take shifts in the shelter providing general oversight of the home. Helping with building and grounds and the garden are a lot of fun too. In all these roles our volunteers engage with clients in the long time Charter House manta of “neighbor helping neighbor”.
