Volunteering Opportunities

Featured Volunteers!

The ladies are Denise Hattley (in purple sweatshirt) and Mary Kelly (in green vest).

The Dynamic Duo, as Denise and Mary call themselves, have been volunteering at Saint Francis Home for 2 years. They offer a weekly art program for the residents each Thursday morning from 10:30 – 11:30 am. They first learned about Saint Francis Home when our executive Director, Bruce Slough, came to speak at Saint Edward the Confessor Catholic Church a few years ago. Mary and Denise reconnected when they went on a mission trip together. They decided they wanted to volunteer on a regular basis and chose Saint Francis Home. We are so blessed that they visit us regularly!

We Thank You!

Volunteers are the backbone of Saint Francis Home. These are people who provide their musical talent, play board games, decorate the Home, organize donated items, play bridge with our residents and so much more.

Saint Francis Home couldn’t function without it’s wonderful volunteers. They bring their time, talent and energy into the Home and allow us to provide so much more than we could otherwise afford to pay. We are blessed that so many volunteers are dedicated to our mission.
