Volunteer

Get Involved: Making a difference can happen at any level

Sammy’s House is a volunteer-driven organization. Our corporate sponsors provide minor and major facility renovations, local corporate teams commit to quarterly visits to help with ongoing projects, individual volunteers reduce our personnel expenses and broaden our impact by supporting our staff, and family volunteer groups are able to bond and learn about the values of diversity while helping us with a variety of projects. These volunteers not only help us carry out our mission, but they also learn about our community’s needs and become more engaged citizens who educate others about the value and capabilities of all people.
