Volunteer at Unitarian House

We are extremely proud of our wonderful home, Unitarian House, which owes much of its quality of living to our large and active volunteer group of both residents and individuals from the broader community.

In addition to the many Unitarian House residents who volunteer their time and share their interests and skills, we enthusiastically welcome volunteers from the wider community who would like to help preserve and enhance the special community spirit that is the hallmark of our home. There are many ways to volunteer and any amount of time one can contribute is greatly appreciated.
