What you can do to help
Volunteers form the core of our village effort. Service Volunteers work directly with members to provide support. Task Force Volunteers help with the development of the many aspects of Bellingham At Home, including recruiting Service Volunteers. Office Volunteers perform the tasks of running the office and matching service volunteers with member requests.
Volunteers are needed to provide services to our members, including such tasks as providing transportation for shopping and medical appointments; light housekeeping, assistance with household maintenance tasks, help with gardening and lawn mowing; and help with social activities including exercise classes and educational activities. Service Volunteers are currently being vetted and trained. You are needed now!
Volunteers are needed to run the Bellingham At Home office. They share the duties of an office manager and staff the office during our hours of operation. Office tasks include operating the Club Express "back office" software, answering phone calls and email, maintaining the office records, handling financial transactions, and training new office volunteers. Office volunteers also help by referring members to service providers that have been vetted and have agreed to offer services members.
