Volunteer

Creating Opportunities

Terrace Communities holds to the philosophy that “We can teach a caring person skills, but we cannot teach a skilled person to care.” Thus, in our hiring practices, we consider more than the formal skill set that someone brings. We strive to acknowledge their true essence, from our initial contact through the process of their “becoming” part of Terrace Communities.

Volunteers are an important part of who we are. We encourage members of the local community and residents’ families and friends to become involved. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of others, please contact us. Opportunities exist to bar tend during our evening social hour, play music, give lectures or readings, foster inter-generational exchanges, do projects such as crafts or gardening, bring animals for pet therapy visits, share talents and passions, or simply visit with our residents.
