3. There are many different volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups
There are many volunteer opportunities available at the Lake County Haven. Below is a listing of a few such opportunities. If you have a unique talent or skill that you’d like to provide to the Haven, just contact us. Chances are that we need it!
Fundraising: We need volunteers to help plan and organize events such as holiday events, our spring fundraiser, and our holiday boutique. These events are hosted by our Women’s Auxiliary…a great way to have fun, make new friends, and support a great cause.
Professional Services: Occasionally there is a need for professionals to offer services to Haven residents or to the agency.
You can also join one of our many teams of volunteers. As a group, these men and women perform a variety of services for our residents each month. Ask our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
If you belong to a group that is looking for a project, there are many additional opportunities available such as Wish List drives, larger projects at the shelter, and conducting special events to benefit The Haven such as a bake sale, car wash, etc.
The Lake County Haven volunteer application is available here. All pages must be completed and signed in order to be eligible for consideration.
