Volunteer Opportunities

At The Cottage, we believe not only in service to our community, but we also believe in providing opportunities for those in our community to serve others. Without our volunteers, we simply would not be able to provide the high-quality services we currently offer to those we serve. There are many ways volunteers can serve the community and serve others at The Cottage, and we encourage each volunteer to select the roles and activities that best meet their individual interests and skill-level.

Are you a high school student in need of volunteer hours?
