The mission of the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington is to provide quality care that respects Jewish values, particularly to those in greatest need. We are a local not-for-profit organization, and our doors are open to all in the community.
Your assistance is a priceless gift.
Volunteers are a daily reminder to our residents that they remain essential to the community and are not forgotten. Every year, we welcome hundreds of volunteers — from retirees to students. Even pets and their owners volunteer on the campus of Charles E. Smith Life Communities!
The Volunteer Department strives to match the interests and abilities of individuals and groups to our needs. Because opportunities are limitless and the schedule flexible, we can assure anyone seeking the satisfaction of contributing their time and energy to a meaningful cause that we will find them the perfect niche.
Prospective volunteers can download a Volunteer Packet. This contains application forms, instructions, and essential information. Check the Schedule of Volunteer Interviews & Orientations: January - March, 2017.
There are a wide variety of volunteer programs available. For those interested in pet therapy, please go to www.peopleanimalslove.org. This organization offers necessary information about certifying your pets for specifically therapeutic visits with residents.
