Volunteer Programs

Volunteers are integral to operations at Angels’ Place & provide a network of resources to Angels’ Place residents!

We embrace the diversity of volunteers that share time with us. We believe that each has unique gifts to share and we carefully match volunteers to the needs at Angels’ Place. Relatively large projects can often be broken down in order to engage an adult with technical skills & experience, as well as to focus the energy of an especially young group.

We respect the commitment & value the time that volunteers share.

  • Volunteers in action are frequently highlighted in photos & articles, in newsletters & social media.
  • Volunteers are nominated for outside awards from state of Michigan & other agencies.
  • Volunteers are supported with letters of recommendation when applying to college, Peace Corp, employment, etc.

How much time can you invest?

  • Some Volunteers may create a regular schedule (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly or monthly visits).

Volunteer Experiences


I joined Angel's place because I wanted to help people with disabilities improve their quality of life. Every time I go to the St. Francis House, I see the bright smiles of men in the house who are earnest to develop their skills whether it be critical thinking or learning how to use technology to connect with their loved ones. Seeing their progress motivates me to do the most with my God-given abilities and after every session I leave with a tremendous satisfaction that I have done something good which draws me back to help more.
