Volunteers are an integral part of the program at Compassion. Some fifty local citizens volunteer nearly 500 hours each month. With only three full-time staff members, Compassion could not exist without the dedicated help of volunteers.

Volunteer opportunities exist in the following areas:

  • Pairs of volunteers meet with two residents every Thursday evening 5:45-7:00 to develop and review individual budget and to discuss employment.
