Abraham House has a long history of volunteering, beginning with the volunteer efforts of Fr. Peter, Sr. Simone and the other founders of Abraham House. While Abraham House is now staffed primarily by paid professionals, we continue to look to volunteers to support us in every program area. Some areas where volunteers play a critical role include:

  • Tutoring in our after school program,
  • Helping organize our donation drive,
  • Manning special events,
  • Managing our front desk reception,
  • Monitoring our residents in the evenings,
  • Facilitating support groups, and
  • Providing workshops for our families.
