Volunteer With Genesis House

There are many ways you can take an active role in helping Genesis House. Check out the list below for some of our available volunteer opportunities, both for individuals or groups. There is a wide variety of things that you can help us with, and if you have a hobby or a skill that you believe could be handy to us please let us know! If you are interested in volunteering please contact Kierston at Krospert26@gmail.com or call us at (440) 244-1853.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Come Spring/Summer we could use a group of volunteers to clean up the grounds around our Outreach Building of garbage and weeds. Trash bags and yard waste bags will be provided, but you will need to provide you own gardening tools and gloves. This is a great project for groups under 18.

  • If you are a member of a gardening club or have a green thumb, we would love to have a person or group plant and maintain our flower box on the Outreach Grounds.

  • For those individuals who are experienced with tilework, at our Outreach Building we have a stripe of hand painted inspirational tiles running along the bottom of the exterior facade. Some of these tiles are coming loose and some are completely off. We would love to get these hand painted tiles back up where they belong.

  • For those with good organizational skills we would love to have a volunteer or two to work on sorting donations, cleaning and organizing storage closets and various other cleaning and organizing projects around our Outreach Building from time to time. 

  • For those who are crafty and good with a sewing machine, we would love to have a volunteer to make pocket calmers, which are scented rice filled mini stress bags. Detailed instructions will be provided.  

  • During Domestic Violence Awareness month in October we would love to have individuals to help us put up as many purple ribbons as we can around various locations in Lorain County. Dates, times and locations dependent on when we get approval from local municipalities and organizations but will most likely be at the beginning of the month.

Things To Know When Volunteering With Genesis House

  1. For confidentiality reasons we do NOT allow volunteers in shelter for the safety and privacy of the individuals we serve.

  2. All volunteer groups of individuals under 18 must have adult supervision

Reoccurring Volunteer Opportunities 

One thing that our organization can always use are donation drives. As a non-profit we depend on the generosity of the community to operate. Monetary donations, paper products, diapers, hygienic products, new twin sized sheets, and gift cards are just a few of the things we frequently need. When planning donation drives, we highly recommend narrowing it down to a few  predetermined items based on what the shelter needs.  For more information about how to start a donation drive and the latest information of agency needs please contact our Donation Coordinator, Rochelle at rh.genesishouse@gmail.com or call (440)-323-3400.
