Volunteers

Fellowship Square’s philosophy of resident enrichment is to provide a wide variety of activities and events that benefit residents in every aspect of living — physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, creatively, spiritually, and vocationally.

We are always looking for individuals or groups to volunteer and to help us provide new and exciting activity choices to Fellowship House residents.

During the COVID-19 pandemic and this period of social distancing, Fellowship Square residents are in even greater need of essential supplies and companionship.

If you are interested in volunteering, we ask that you:

1.  Read and understand the Fellowship Square Volunteer Guidelines. (PDF)

2.  Read and agree to sign the Volunteer Acceptance, Release and Waiver of Liability Form. (fillable PDF)

3.  Submit an online Volunteer Application Form.

Please note that prior to submitting the Volunteer Application Form, applicants must attest: 1) that all facts are true and complete, 2) that they have read and understand the documents listed above and agree to abide by them, and 3) that they understand that false statements or omissions, or failure to adhere to these conditions shall be grounds for dismissal from the Fellowship Square Volunteer Program.

  • Volunteers are offering to help move bulk donations and deliver food to residents’ apartments.
