Volunteering can add a purpose to your life and give you the wonderful opportunity to serve others. You can make a valuable contribution to our community by becoming a volunteer.

      Residential       Living

Volunteers help directly or indirectly as people with disabilities develop their leisure skills and assists in completing projects. Activities with residents may include reading, games, walks, etc. Must be 14 years of age. You may select anytime to volunteer for as little to 30 minutes each time. Volunteers must remain under supervision of staff. 

        Bible Study &      Peer  Mentoring

We sing, laugh, and listen to a message about the Bible. There is small group discussion time where our volunteers guide a table of our residents in answering the questions given to them. We end with prayer requests, with our residents asking for prayer and another resident praying for them. It’s through all of these interactions and encouragements that our residents deepen their relationship with Jesus. 

          Treasure           Chest

The Treasure Chest offers a variety of quality, clean, and gently used clothing for the whole family. Over 80 volunteers share the responsibilities of pricing and sorting donated merchandise, display and running the iPad register. All proceeds from the sale of items directly benefit those served at the Village. 

Volunteer Opportunities 

There are many volunteer opportunities at Village Northwest Unlimited where we depend on volunteers to work with our staff to help enrich the lives of adults with disabilities and fulfill our mission to provide Purpose, Privacy, and Dignity for all people.
