The Clarehouse Volunteer Program provides assistance and support to staff, guests, and families.

Our volunteers keep Clarehouse healthy and strong. Clarehouse is supported by over 200 volunteers who work both inside and outside the home. Volunteers receive training in the Clarehouse philosophy of providing emotional, spiritual and social support. The Volunteer Program is coordinated by our Support Services Director.
