Making a difference through purposeful volunteering.

Purposeful volunteering is a cornerstone of life at Tel Hai. Through the work of Volunteer Services, the lives of others are blessed through the joyful service of our extraordinary team of volunteers.

Annually, volunteers devote thousands of hours to significantly enhance not only the quality of life for residents, family members and guests, but also the work environment for team members.

If you have a servant heart that desires to help others, volunteer opportunities range from an hour a week to several hours a day. Volunteers choose when and how they spend their time, graciously performing purposeful work they enjoy. Opportunities are vast, such as assisting with on-campus programs and activities, lending a hand to residents in personal care or health care, friendly visitation and even pet visiting.
