Individual Volunteers
Front Desk Volunteer

To help us protect the vulnerable population of families we serve, we have slowly begun to welcome back volunteers who have received the COVID-19 vaccination to provide direct, onsite help.

We are looking for volunteers with a passion for our mission and the flexibility to help with a variety of tasks. While not every task involves interacting directly with families, they are all critical to helping families feel at home.

Volunteer tasks may include:

  • Welcoming guests and answering phones at the front desk
  • Giving House tours to families and visitors
  • Cleaning, restocking, and organizing common spaces, kitchens, and pantries
  • Preparing guest rooms for the arrival of new families
  • Simple household tasks, such as laundry or taking out trash
  • Volunteer drivers (age 21+) can help our families with errands to grocery stores, pharmacy or trips to the hospital for visitation.

Volunteer applicants with availability during late afternoon/evening hours are on our volunteer wish list!

For more information, contact Sara Funaiock, Volunteer Manager, at 302-428-5340 or s.funaiock@rmhde.org.

Teen Volunteers

Our Teen Volunteer Program is open seasonally to students ages 16+. Teens helping in these roles help with direct, onsite service tasks including answering family questions about the House, helping to process donations in our pantries, and assisting with simple household tasks like running dishwashers or preparing guestrooms.

Teens may also help to coordinate Family Activity Nights, or learn about philanthropy through planning fundraisers for RMHDE.

To learn more about the program and time commitments, please contact Sarah Sommer, Volunteer Program Assistant, at s.sommer@rmhde.org or 302-428-5324.
