POUR OUT… your gifts and talents! At Jill’s House, you will change lives.

We do extend summer volunteer opportunities to those who cannot commit to serving for the entire year. In order to volunteer only during our summer program, you must commit to serving at least one three-hour shift per week for the duration of the summer.

Jill’s House offers opportunities for groups to serve at Jill’s House Weekend Adventures programs. To learn more about this opportunity, please visit our Weekend Adventures webpage.
Jill’s House asks volunteers to commit to serve twice a month for at least one year. Volunteers have found that the more often they serve, the more comfortable they feel and the more satisfaction they gain from their experience.
Due to our state regulations, as well as paperwork requirements, we require our volunteers to serve on a regular basis and not for an allotted number of hours or for the sole purpose of fulfilling a volunteer service requirement. The minimum requirement is to commit to serving at least 2 shifts (approximately 3 hours each) every month for at least one year.
