Volunteer with Optimism Place

There are many ways for individuals to support Optimism Place through volunteer work. Due to the privacy and security of the shelter, we do not typically allow volunteer work within the shelter. However, there are many meaningful roles that members of our community can fill to help support what we do. Some of which include: 

Social Media Community Supporter 

Grocery Shopper

Food Driver Organization

Poster & Flyer Distribution

We are always open to new ideas of how the community might contribute volunteered time to Optimism Place!

Please contact Leah Cabral, Manager of Communications and Fund Development if you are interested and/or have any questions.
