Volunteer Service and Internships
Volunteers are often needed at Killingsworth. If you choose to share your time, your talents and your skills with the women of Killingsworth you will not only bless us and receive our deep gratitude, you may also receive a blessing for yourself.
There are many opportunities for service:
Receptionist service — answer the door and phone, get the mail, assist staff
Organize and inventory — help sort and store donations of in-kind goods
Pulling those tenacious vines out of the bushes!
Share the harvest from your vegetable garden
Make bedroom curtains – build shelves for our closets!
Plant seasonal flowers in the yard; provide hanging baskets for the porch
Meditative Art classes
Preparation of taxes
How to dress, stand, sit and smile for success
PRAY for the residents and staff
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Student internships are considered case by case, depending on our need and the requirements of the educational institution. We make an effort to partner with our local colleges and tech schools.
All volunteers will interact with our residents at some point. Your attitude, expressions and interest in serving others can enhance their journey and growth. It may change your life too. We believe the healthy, loving, and challenging relationship our residents have with the staff and volunteers is one way God works the mystery of grace.
Please contact us if you are interested. Orientation and training is normally part of your first service, if required. The staff member on duty would assist you as needed until you are comfortable on your own. Killingsworth is a drug-free and alcohol free environment; volunteers who wish to serve in the Home may be drug/alcohol screened. Because of the nature of our program, we cannot accept court-ordered or similarly adjudicated service.
* Individuals or groups interested in social, family-oriented or employment skills workshops or Bible studies are asked to submit a proposal to the the Program Coordinator.
