Other Volunteer Opportunities

While our guest families are away from home,       help us bring home to them.

 

Volunteers make the difference in the lives of all patients and families hosted by Hospitality Homes so they feel welcomed and cared for. There are many ways to support people traveling to Boston for medical care. 

EvenTs

Hospitality Homes holds events throughout the year.  We are always in need of volunteers to support us on the day of the event.  If you are interested in short blocks of time individually or in a group please contact Denise Duclos.

Family Projects/ School Projects

There are many ways you can support our guest families. To find a project that fits your availability check out our partnership with Project Giving Kids, a nonprofit all about connecting busy kids and families to fun, meaningful and age-appropriate service activities through a unique website experience. 

COMMUNITY CONNECTION VOLUNTEER PROGRAM 

Since 2012, Hospitality Homes’ Apartment Program has made a significant difference in the lives of families with specific needs that are not appropriate for our host homes. At times these families can feel isolated from the community in a strange city that is far away from home. Hospitality Homes has created the CCVP to provide compassion and support to these visiting families by matching them with a local volunteer that serves as their host. The mission of the program is to establish the human connection between the guest family and a local Bostonian that can offer his/her assistance by providing local information and resources, check in periodically, suggest outings, provide a warm meal, help with transportation, or just offer a friendly ear with a phone call or email away. Our volunteers support families that are limited by treatment or other illness-related barriers to engage in the community. This program helps our apartment guests feel welcomed and cared for decreasing their level of uncertainty and stress during a very difficult time in their lives. To discuss the many ways you may support these families, contact Denise Duclos.

Gift Card Donations 

Families travel thousands of miles to seek medical care at Boston area hospitals. They spend all of their time at the hospital help them with respite by donating gift cards to support them during their stay.
