Move-In Volunteers


Event Description:
As a Move-In Volunteer, you help to assure that all our clients have dignifying home furnishings and a positive start to their new life. This can be an individual or a group volunteer activity. This position is perfect for people who are satisfied with hands-on work that leads to a concrete, finished product. It is also a great opportunity for volunteers to meet new people and build new relationships.


Volunteers assist with moving in furniture and setting up apartments and houses. Responsibilities include, but are not necessarily limited, to:

  • Transporting bulk items from our Family Store into the home
  • Unloading moving van of household items and placing them in the home
  • Cleaning/tidying up the space

Required Skills: Ability to follow instructions and work with a team; heavy lifting is required and organizational skills.


Time Commitment: Move-in times are scheduled as families move out. Typically between the hours of 10am-8pm every other Friday. We ask that volunteers commit to a 2 hour slot. If you sign up for a particular date and we have a move out scheduled that day you will be contacted via phone or email in advance with detailed information about the move. If we do not have any move outs planned the day you signed up to help then you will  not be contacted beforehand.
