Ongoing Volunteer Positions

The majority of our volunteers work on a regular basis.  They commit to a weekly four hour shift in one or more program areas or to a regular Meals on Wheels delivery.  We also have volunteers who work as substitutes (filling in when our regular volunteers are unable to make their shift), or on an on call basis through our Just Friends program and special projects.  Most of our ongoing opportunities require volunteers to be at least 18 years of age or older; volunteer drivers must be age 21 or older.  We ask for a minimum of a three month commitment for all of our ongoing volunteer opportunities.

Interested volunteers are invited to complete the volunteer application linked below so we can find a good fit for you based on your availability and interest and our current needs.  

Short Term and Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Hastings Family Service often needs short term volunteers to help with special events like School Supplies, Project Share, food drives, and more!

Group Volunteers

Due to space restrictions, we are often unable to accept requests for group volunteer opportunities.  However, depending on the size and age level of your group, we can often suggest ideas for service that can be done off site.  Please contact us for more information.
