The Bob Rumball Home for the Deaf considers volunteers a vital component of our CareTeam. They have responsibilities which reflect professional respect and are offeredgrowth opportunities. We provide a wide range of volunteer opportunities for people of all ages and interests.
Volunteers add to our residents’ and staff’s quality of life by helping to create a more
Natural, community based home. Volunteers have the opportunity to make new friends
and enjoy new experiences, skills, and challenges. A full orientation, training and ongoingsupport is provided through our Volunteer Coordinator.
Most volunteers commit to an on-going number of hours in a week or month and often
create their own positions based on their individual talents. Some of the volunteer roles
that are available include:
We like to plan special outings likes shopping trips, bowling or just a drive in the country. The more volunteers we have, the more residents have the opportunity to enjoy these important activities to keep in touch with their community.

Flower Gardening and Vegetable Gardening

Sometimes all we need is someone there to listen!! Many of our residents would love a friend to visit them to chat. There are many interesting stories to be heard!!
Some of our residents require assistance during dining and many enjoy the companionship and conversation shared during the meal time, and what better than to share that time with a friend?
