Volunteer Requirements

With vaccines being readily available to the public, we require the following of our in-house volunteers to protect all guests of Nora’s Home:

*”Fully vaccinated” is defined as 14 days after the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the second and final dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines and boosted 6 months after your last COVID vaccination. Any vaccinated persons within the 14 day window must provide documentation of a negative PCR swab.

Our guests and staff here at Nora’s Home are grateful for your interest in getting involved! There are many ways to share your compassion and make families feel at home. Explore these opportunities for you to experience the joy and satisfaction of giving some of your time and talents to help our families in need. Please fill out this form prior to arriving for your volunteer shift.

Have a unique skill or idea that isn’t listed? We welcome the creativity of our volunteers and strive to find a good fit for everyone. We welcome individual or group volunteers but have suspended all in-person volunteering until mid-February. Contact Morgan Fuhriman, our Outreach Coordinator, at morgan@norashome.org to discuss further.

Sunflower Sacks

Guests often spend long days at clinic and miss meals. Sunflower Sacks help provide an easy snack for guests to bring with them to long clinic and enjoy! Decorate some bags, fill them with snacks, and drop them by to the home.

Special Events

Every year Nora’s Home hosts a Gala and Golf Classic that often requires extra help. We are seeking reliable volunteers who feel comfortable assisting with registration, setting up displays, selling raffle tickets, or aiding with crowd management and other miscellaneous duties. Occasionally we host other events that may not be recurring every year. If you have any interest in being invited to assist in any of our events, drop us a note!
