HopeNet Getting Ahead Volunteers

Become an Advocate

HopeNet Advocates assist us with client care. They help welcome our clients and create a safe environment for each person. They are the first glimpse of hope that a client hears on the phone and the first friendly face the client will see. Advocates volunteer weekly or biweekly during normal business hours. Advocates are interviewed to ensure the role is a good fit.

 

Event Volunteer

Our Event Volunteers help us prepare and execute a variety of events throughout the year. The tasks of an Event Volunteer vary and can include greeting, party planning, registration, refreshments, etc. Event Volunteers can participate in all events or just once a year.

 

Special Projects

Our Special Project Volunteers help with a variety of different small projects throughout the year including office tasks, organizing storage closets, event preparations, holiday meals for clients, etc. These volunteers are scheduled on an as needed basis and generally help once or twice a year.

 

Prayer Team

HopeNet understands the power of prayer in our lives as well as the lives of clients. The Prayer team is made up of devoted prayer warriors that lift HopeNet to the Lord daily.
