Volunteering at Cheney Outreach Center
Our volunteers assist in many ways. We are looking for sharp-minded individuals who can commit to at least three (3) hours per month. Our greatest need is help on Wednesday mornings.
Volunteers are trained to meet with clients and follow all paperwork procedures. Documents must be collected from clients and copied. Volunteers with altruistic hearts and listening ears for clients are crucial.
Office work is needed as well: filing, copying, cleaning, running errands.
To apply, call Cheney Outreach Center at (509) 235-8900. We will set up a time for you to come observe what we do and fill out an application to volunteer.
