At times we all need a helping hand or an encouraging word. When you volunteer at Able to Serve, you’ll experience the fun, friendship, and satisfaction of helping adults with special needs become more independent and use their abilities to serve others
Monday-Friday (9am-3pm) Full day/half day opportunities
Helping participants learn to wash/dry clothes, use the computer, and actively experience the community are just a few of activities in our program. But most important, you’ll be a friend who encourages our participants to be the best they can be.
Monday-Friday (mornings half-day) no special license required
Volunteering to drive is much more than operating a vehicle. It creates opportunities for participants to learn about their community. Outings are typically scheduled to leave in the morning around 10am and return back at the building by lunchtime. Shopping at Bj’s for Backpack Buddies, exercising at the First Baptist Gym, visiting a local business and bowling at Buffaloe Lanes South are just a few of our monthly outings.
Special Events Volunteer
Scheduled throughout the year
Able to Serve hosts several fundraisers, two community dances, and many special activities (cookouts, Bible Camp, outdoor projects) each year. These events are in addition to the volunteers needed in our program. If you love organizing, decorating, working events, or this just fits best in your hectic schedule, we’ve got a place for you.
Works around your schedule
If you enjoy teaching your favorite hobby, music, craft or skill, our participants are ready and willing to learn. And we’ll have fun doing it-whether it’s knitting, making greeting or Christmas cards, gardening/greenhouse, art, fitness, or cooking-that’s for sure! Contact the office with a time that works with your schedule and supplies that we may need to purchase in advance.
Do you have experience in creating newsletters, brochures or informational flyers? Are you familiar with updating webpage information, working with Constant Contact, or using social media effectively? We need volunteers who will work closely with the Executive Director to produce a donor newsletter, brochures, as well as keep our online information updated. Most of these projects can be accomplished by email and online.
Works around your schedule
Make your own hours Monday thru Friday, even if it is just a couple of hours a week. Nothing complicated or difficult. Computer skills would be very helpful. Especially helpful would be knowledge of QuickBooks, but not necessary. Again, make your own hours.
