Volunteer

Neighborhood House welcomes individuals or groups who wish to volunteer. One-time, short or long-term options are available to accommodate today’s busy lifestyles. Opportunities include event support, special children and adult program projects, donation drives and more! Currently we have two volunteer opportunities available.

 *To help curb the surge of cases in Salt Lake City and keep you all safe, Neighborhood House is suspending all volunteer services that require direct contact with clients inside the building. *

Become a volunteer in three easy steps:

1. Submit your Volunteer Application.

  • Individual volunteer applications are accepted December - January, May - June and August - September each year.
  • Group volunteer inquiries are accepted year-round.
  • Please note that we do not accept volunteers completing court ordered community service hours.

2. Complete a brief interview to determine the best fit.

  • For individual volunteers, interviews are conducted at the beginning of your onsite volunteer orientation.
  • For volunteers working directly with clients, a criminal background check may be required.

3. Finalize your schedule and get started!

Volunteer Opportunities

At the moment we have two volunteer opportunities:

  • Nourish to Flourish Initiative: Neighborhood House is proud to be part of the Nourish to Flourish initiative. With you, we can combat food insecurities. We need your help to pick up 100 meals from the restaurant 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 them up to distribute them. Select a day to do this, and then do it weekly. Total time commitments are no more than 2 hours. Please find the signup sheet here. 
  • Tutoring Volunteers: Do you love working with kids? Look no more! This opportunity requires volunteers who love to help our School Age children K-6 with their school assignments. Volunteers come to Neighborhood House between 3:00 and 5:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, or between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on Wednesdays. We will set up the time that best works for your schedule once you signup here.
  • Volunteer to organize the Food Pantry: Starting January 19th we will be reopening our Food Pantry! With the help of the Utah Food Bank and your support we will be able to provide food security to our families. Every Tuesday at 10:30 am, we will require two volunteers, able to lift 25 lbs, that can help us restock our Food Pantry on a weekly basis. The total time commitment is no more than 2 hours. Click here to Sign Up!
