What Opportunities Are Available?

Holiday Events: We are looking for individuals, groups, organizations or families to Adopt-a-home for the Holiday, providing gifts for three to four people in a Community Living Home or for a family in need. Help us spread holiday cheer and provide a more meaningful holiday season for those in need. If you are only able to provide gifts for one individual you can do that as well.

Lead a Small Group Community Outing: We are looking for volunteers to build relationships with individuals supported through our Small Groups Program, an adult day program that supports people’s desire to find and enjoy a mix of meaningful community based activities. We are looking for a volunteer to lead and organize a community activity. Activities can include, but are not limited to, fishing, music, sports, or any outdoor activity.

What Precautions is The Arc NCR Taking During COVID-19?

The health and safety of the people we support, team members, volunteers, and the community is the highest priority of The Arc NCR. Due to COVID-19, we will be taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Before each volunteer activity, all volunteers will need to do the following:

  • Take his/her own temperature prior to volunteering. If temperature is 100.00 or higher, the person may not volunteer that day.
  • Monitor his or her health symptoms. If any of these symptoms are present, he/she should abstain from volunteering: fever, shortness of breath (not severe), cough, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.
  • Notify us if he/she has been tested for COVID-19, if he/she has been around someone who has been tested or he/she has been potentially exposed.

During volunteer activities, all volunteers will need to:

  • Social distance as best as possible, remaining six feet apart.
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when visibly soiled, before eating, and after using the restroom.
