At Just Neighbors IHN volunteers primarily assist the organization and the families it serves through their partner congregation or community group. Just Neighbors IHN professional staff members provide ongoing training and support to Just Neighbors IHN Volunteers. Volunteers provide both practical support and compassionate hospitality for our guest families.
Individuals can help in several ways. For instance, families can purchase items on our Wish List instead of buying holiday or birthday gifts for families. Individuals can organize book drives to collect new or gently used board books for very young children. Gift cards, especially gas cards, are always needed and help adults travel to a job interview or to work. If you have an idea for a project or a skill to offer, please contact us.
Each Network congregation or organization has a Volunteer Coordinator who oversees the hospitality program within their congregation or organization. This includes planning menus and the recruitment of support volunteers.
If you would like more information on becoming a Volunteer or Volunteer Coordinator, please contact us.
