Volunteering at Calvary

The ongoing success of our programs would not be possible without the dedication of volunteers who have supported us from Calvary’s founding to present day. Calvary volunteers provide invaluable services to residents, but they also gain something valuable in return from the relationships they build and the meaningful work they do. Our staff schedule volunteers based on their availability, interests, skills and where there is a specific need.
