Friend in Deed:
This program provides social support to Life Skills clients. A
volunteer is matched with a client who has similar interests, and
then together, they engage in various activities and outings of
their choosing, such as going to the movies, shopping, eating out,
cooking, etc. This opportunity requires a one year commitment and
is available year round.
program ensures our clients live in quality homes by allowing
organizations and individuals to "adopt" a home to make any
necessary improvements and/or donate any needed household items.
This opportunity is available year round.
Life Skills organizes several major
fundraising events each year, such as the Walk Run 'n
Roll (May), the Par-Tee Dinner Auction and
Tee-it-Up Golf Tournament (July) and the Festival
of Trees (Nov), none of which would be possible without
the help of volunteers. Tasks leading up to and during these
events vary. Life Skills also hosts several smaller family
events and other miscellaneous events throughout the year. These
opportunities are situational and Life Skills will reach out to
volunteers as needed.
