Volunteer Opportunities


LEAVEN relies on the talents of hundreds of volunteers, a small staff and the generosity of the community to fulfill its mission.

Hundreds of your friends and neighbors Рincluding clergy, nurses, accountants, students, and domestic engineers Рare working to make a difference in our community. Together, they donated over 15,774  hours in 2015 to help ensure that every dollar contributed to LEAVEN has maximum benefit to our neighbors in need. Although some positions allow you to volunteer as your time permits, most volunteers typically work one three-hour shift a week.


If you are interested in a rewarding experience, there is a role for you:


Greet clients, answer questions and provide information over the telephone, administer the appointment calendar.

Learn about client needs through an interview process and document client stories.

Case Worker
Verify and coordinate client needs.

Administrative Assistant
Support LEAVEN in countless ways, from mailings to special events.

Organize information about clients and LEAVEN activity.

LEAVEN has special needs as well, from interpreters to computer technicians.

Contact our Volunteer & Community Development Coordinator, at 738-9635 or leaven@leavenfoxcities.org for more information.


We encourage all volunteers to sign up for our electronic copy of the Inside Story, if you have not already done this please sign up here and choose current volunteer from the options.
