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. Any vaccinated persons within the 14-day window must provide documentation of a negative COVID test.

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 the form below 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. Contact Breanna Garcia, Outreach Coordinator, at breanna@norashome.org to discuss further.
