Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hope House! Before you can begin volunteering we ask that you please complete the new volunteer process.
First, please fill out the application that is located here, and email it to the Volunteer Coordinator, Abby Gardner, at the email address on the application. Please be as detailed as possible when completing the availability section.
Second, come by and take a tour of Hope House. We like for all of our potential volunteers to come by and meet our children and walk through the facility.
Volunteers are needed at our special events. Help set up, clean up, and work the event in a number of ways.
We offer tours every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and tours are about every 30 minutes. If you are not available for a tour during these times please email Abby Gardner with times that you are available. Special times for large groups are available.
Lastly, if you feel that you are ready to volunteer with our children we ask that you complete a fingerprint/background check. The background check instructions can be found here. Since we are an accredited daycare and Shelby County Pre-School, all of our volunteers must pass a background check. This is provided at no cost to you by the Department of Human Services and you can schedule it with a provider near you at your convenience.
Once you complete the background check at your preferred location the new volunteer process is complete. The background check can take anywhere from 7 to 14 business days to be sent to Hope House.
NOTE: If you do not hear from anyone regarding your background check within 30 days of completion, then please contact Abby Gardner.
NOTE: You do not need to contact Hope House to see if your background check has been received, unless it has been past 30 days from the day you completed it. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Abby, will contact you when it has been sent to Hope House.
Once you complete the process and you hear back from Abby Gardner you can begin volunteering at Hope House!
We look forward to having you as a volunteer!
