Volunteer With Us!
Volunteers are the backbone of Openhouse. Volunteers ensure we’re able to meet our mission to serve our growing community of LGBT seniors as they age in the city they’ve always called home. Here are just a few of the many opportunities to volunteer with Openhouse:
Become a “Friendly Visitor”. Find out more here. Ask Sylvia about our telephone assurance program!
Support Openhouse Community Engagement Programs by giving a hand during activities and/or after an event.
Engage LGBT seniors through ongoing outreach phone calls about upcoming programs.
Support Openhouse program staff by offering administrative support through data entry, posting information in online calendars, developing promotional flyers, copyediting our monthly senior newsletter, and more!
Assist us with outreach by posting information online and by distributing flyers about Openhouse activities, services, programs, and events for LGBT older adults in aging-friendly spaces around the city.
Advocate with public officials for funding, housing and services as part of the Openhouse speaker’s bureau.
Openhouse will give you all the training and support you need to be an active, satisfied volunteer. To find out more about how you can volunteer at Openhouse, please complete this Volunteer Application and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also post periodic volunteer opportunities on our VolunteerMatch.org page.
Openhouse sends one or two e-mails per month to people who have signed up on our email list. Our emails include information about volunteer opportunities, our LGBT discussion groups, presentations on available resources, and “how-to” seminars on getting into affordable housing and accessing other services. We also provide updates on our affordable housing facility at 55 Laguna Street. Our emails are a great way to stay informed about the latest developments at Openhouse the news and information you need! You can select what kind of emails you’d like to receive and unsubscribe at any time.
