Long-time volunteer Eleanor Buchanan and guests at Jacob’s Village

Whether it’s Eagle Scouts beautifying our grounds or church groups leading our residents in devotions and a sing-along, Jacob’s Village is blessed to have a wealth of individuals and groups who volunteer their time and talents to help enrich the lives of all those who live at Jacob’s Village.  If you are looking to spend one-on-one time with individuals who are caring, joyful, and an encouragement to everyone they meet, the residents at Jacob’s Village offer exactly that kind of volunteer opportunity.

Our organization also needs volunteers to help with an assortment of clerical and grounds-keeping tasks.  Below you will find a list of volunteer options that will offer you either direct contact with our residents or other avenues by which you can support our work.  Let us know if any of the listed opportunities interest you.
