Volunteer Opportunities

At the moment we have two volunteer opportunities:

  • Nourish to Flourish Initiative: We Starting on August 10 every weekday the restaurant Diversion Eatery is providing free meals to Neighborhood House’s clients. We need your help to pick up about 120 meals from the restaurant on 535 N 300 W, Salt Lake City, UT 84103 at 4pm every weekday. There is help there to load and the meals are fully boxed so no worries about spills. After picking the meals up, you would bring them to Neighborhood House and set up in the west end of the parking lot to distribute in a drive through fashion (so no contact). We are hoping to get 2-5 volunteers that will select a day of the week to do this, and then do it on a weekly basis. Total time commitment is no more than 2 hours. Please find the signup sheet here. 
  • Digital Learning Volunteers: Starting on September 8 digital learning will happen in our School Age Program every weekday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM. We are asking volunteers to help us keep children engaged and on task during digital learning, and offer help with technology when needed. We’d like to assign one child to one volunteer for safety reasons. We would prefer if each volunteer could sign up for the same schedule every week to make it easier for the children to maintain a weekly/daily routine. You can find more details and the signup sheet here.
  •  Spanish Speaking Volunteers: We are looking for spanish speaking volunteers who have a passion for serving aging and disabled adults at our Adult Day Care facilities. Our Adult Day Center serves those who require extra attention and assistance during the daytime, allowing their caretakers to have respite during the day and allowing the client to remain living in their own home for a longer period of time. Volunteers who work with our adult clients not only provide an extra set of eyes and hands for our wonderful staff, but they provide essential social engagement for our adult clients, improving their mood and their overall outlook on life. Please contact us to learn more!

We are always happy to answer questions about our volunteer program and our Community Engagement Coordinator can be reached at or (801) 363-4589 ext. 108.
