Volunteers Wanted!

We are currently actively seeking volunteers for the following positions:

Receptionist – Front Office

Would you like to meet new people, help answer questions and be a part of making the Center run smoothly?

Receptionists are NEEDED at the Front Desk. We have 3 1/2 hour shifts available, either 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This is an ideal job for a team player: you’ll have a partner who works the desk with you since two volunteers are scheduled on each shift. Training is simple because it happens while you are on duty.

If you are interested, talk to one of our staff who will be glad to share their thoughts. You can also call Irene Johnson, Office Manager at 503-588-0748.


Please contact Front Desk at 503-588-0748, if you are interested in running the BINGO program. We also need 6 – 8 support staff for cashier, two Bingo callers and 1 – 2 for refreshments.

Want to Become a Volunteer?

We have a large need for volunteers! Some of the positions that need to be filled might need previous experience, but overall there is also the possibility to train people. We are always eager to have new volunteers, along with innovative ideas they can bring to our Center.
