“You must give some time to your fellow men. Even if it’s a little thing, do something for others– something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.”
Our volunteers help our paid staff enhance the lives of our home members. We are grateful for our volunteers, as their efforts are extremely valuable.
How You Can Help
The volunteer spirit is alive and well in Washtenaw County. We have been blessed with caring, dedicated people willing to give of their time and resources to help us serve those who cannot care for themselves. If you think you might want to volunteer for His Eye is on the Sparrow, here are some examples of opportunities to be of service. Because of WCHO regulations, volunteers must receive some training paid for by HEIOTS.
1. Assist with home member care during the "busy" times of the day, in the morning before and during the breakfast time and again in the evening at supper through bedtime.
2. Assist with home member support during day trips, shopping for the house or for personal items, for attendance at religious services, or for recreational trips to concerts, high school and college sporting events or movies.
3. Assist with committee work for planning of events, scheduling and notification of volunteers to assist the home members.
4. Assist with house maintenance such as yard work (grass cutting, leaf raking, snow clearance, etc.) and provide guidance for home members as they train to be able to do their share of the chores.
5. Assist with fund raising events both in planning the events and helping with the setup and cleanup at whatever the event is.
6. Assist as backup for those volunteers who may need time off for holidays, illness or vacations.
