Volunteers from Faulkner Design Group, Inc. help get Incarnation House ready for its opening in January 2016.
Incarnation House believes that volunteers are essential to our success and the future success of the young people we serve. There are both long-term and short-term opportunities for individuals and groups that range from onetime events to once-a-week needs. In addition to volunteer opportunities that involve direct work with students, there are also needs for administrative and program support that do not require interaction with students.
We believe that each organization and individual has unique skills and resources and we will work with you to find the perfect volunteer opportunity that uses your skills to best serve the students.
