Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Julia C. Hester House, Inc. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers to assist us with our mission to enhance the quality of life for residents in the Fifth Ward and surrounding communities.
In order to fulfill our mission and provide the best programs possible for our seniors and children, we require all potential volunteers to go through an approval process which could include a criminal background check before becoming a registered Julia C. Hester House volunteer. Please complete the Volunteer Application, Release of Information and Confidentiality forms and return them to our administrative offices.
Once we receive your application, confidentiality form, three references and the Release of Information form, we ask that you attend a volunteer meeting or make arrangements for a time to meet at our office. This meeting allows us to get to know you personally and also gives you an opportunity to learn more about the programs offered at Julia C. Hester House.
In order to keep our administrative expenses at a minimum, a $10.00 donation is requested from each prospective volunteer in order to help defray the cost of the volunteer associated materials. You will receive mailings, calls and can check our website for our monthly volunteer meeting dates and volunteer opportunities.
We greatly appreciate your willingness to become a Julia C. Hester House volunteer. Thank you for your interest in helping us to continue the legacy of commitment to the Fifth Ward and surrounding communities.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact me at 713-672-2573.
