SAVE, Inc. provides a home for nearly 700 socially and medically disadvantaged individuals and families. We are committed to empowering these men, women, and children so that they may lead healthy stable lives with personal dignity.
With your help, our goal of a healthy, dignified independence for all our residents is an attainable one. A volunteer partnership with SAVE, Inc. means an experience that will bring real value and joy to not only the lives of our residents, but to you - the volunteer - as well.
Please consider donating your time, energy, and spirit to SAVE, Inc. Your talents and efforts can help us provide the absolute best care and support possible for our residents - a true home environment.!
Landscaping - With 8 properties to manage, we don't quite have enough green thumbs to go around! SAVE, Inc. is always looking for extra hands and supplies to help turn our plain yards into curbside beauties. We welcome all types of landscaping supplies and skill levels, from basic weeding and pruning to more extravagant landscaping.
Professional Services - Examples include anything web-related, estate planning or planned giving services, financial planning for residents, and skilled labor activities such as plumbing, painting, etc.
Committee Service - We are always looking for folks to help serve on committees - Development, Client Services, Finance, Event, etc.
SAVE Home Meals - Food preparation is often a challenge for the residents of SAVE Home, but their communal living style makes it easy for others to help out. Whether you would like to prepare lunch or dinner, in house or dropped off, we welcome the culinary talents of you or your organization. Mealtime is a time for family to come together and the SAVE Home family invites you to join theirs.
Table Captains - If you, or someone you know, has been inspired by the mission of SAVE, Inc. and would like to help us spread the word, we invite you to become a Table Captain for a No Place Like Home Event. A Table Captain is simply someone who shares our passion for providing housing assistance for the socially and medically disadvantaged in our community, and can bring 9-10 friends, family members, or colleagues to the table to be inspired as well. You would serve as an ambassador for SAVE, Inc., an ally to our cause, and a voice for our clients.
Party Planner - A new volunteer opportunity, this might be the most fun! We would love to plan a get-together at Cropsey Place or SAVE Home once or twice a month, if only we had the time. We need people who are willing to plan a one or two hour activity. Movie night would require only a DVD, snacks & drinks; if you know how to shuffle, cards may be your activity of choice; if you're crafty, a scrapbooking party might be in order. Nothing fancy is required! We will get the word out to the residents while you plan the party!
