Volunteering is at the heart of Luther Manor's philosophy of sharing God's love by helping others. Our volunteers play a vital role in creating the sense of home, family and community that unifies our campus. This generous group - made up of friends, neighbors, corporate teams, church and civic organizations and Luther Manor residents - provides more than 47,000 hours of community service each year.
Luther Manor's Volunteer Services program includes more than 75 positions. Dedicated staff members will help you find or create the position that is right for you. Whether you would like to spend one-on-one time with residents, assist in group activities and outings, or help out with special events and projects, we have something for you.
If you can give five hours a day, want to help on an on-call basis or you'd just like to come in a couple of times a year, we welcome you to join us as a volunteer. Even the smallest gesture can have a huge impact, and our residents appreciate every gift of time and each act of kindness.
