Interested in Volunteering at Angels' Place

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).
  • Some Volunteers may work on an as needed basis to complete projects.
  • Volunteers may use their time to fulfill service hour requirements for your school or other organization.

What do you need to know?

  • Policy – Angels’ Place is committed to equal opportunity and abides by all relevant laws and regulations.
  • Age Requirements – There are many volunteer activities for all ages.
  • State Law and Local Regulations – To work in proximity of our residents you must provide proof of a negative TB test that is no more than five years old.
  • Application – Each applicant will be contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator to determine interests and opportunities.

Health and Safety Guidelines for Volunteering

  • Angels' Place is limited on the number of volunteers that can be considered at any given time. Smaller groups of 2-4 volunteers indoor and 10-15 for outdoor.
  • Face masks must be worn over the nose and mouth during all indoor activities and outdoor volunteer activities around staff and residents.

Volunteer Experiences

Nikhil

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.

Working at Angel's Place has been a great experience. I have been here over 3 years and what impresses me about the company are the friendly people working here. Various positions from corporate, dcw's, managers, mechanics, handy people, crafters, spiritual developers, and volunteers all interact very well.

I am fortunate to be part of serving the community of men and women with special needs. Each day they remind me how to live with grace and humor. Overall it has been a rewarding experience and I hope you will consider joining the Angels' Place team!

Amenzee

Being a part of Angels' Place has allowed me to grow in my walk and faith in Christ. It humbles me and teaches me how to serve ALL his children regardless of ability and circumstance. Barb and the women of Middlebury home are loving, kind, accepting, and generous. Something that we all can teach and learn from every day... Angels' Place is where it is.
