 Membership Frequently Asked Questions

 

If volunteers provide the services, why is there a membership fee?

 

Bellingham At Home maintains an office, considered to be the "command center".  Although many office staff are volunteers, membership fees are used to pay for: 
- Printed resource materials 
- Advertising
- Insurance 
- Office overhead 
- Technical infrastructure (computer hardware and Club Express software) 
- Membership in the Village to Village Network
- Paid staff (future)   

 

Will members receive an informational packet?

 

Upon signing up, a household will receive a member handbook. In addition the website is a great source of information.

 

Will members be able to give feedback about volunteers?

 

Yes, we will be calling after a volunteer has delivered services (within 24 hours) to get feedback specific to that appointment and that volunteer. There will also be an annual member satisfaction survey.
