Every year hundreds of volunteers donate thousands of hours to help CMR fulfill its mission of improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable residents of Montgomery County. Just a few hours a week or a month can make a difference in someone's life. Do you speak Spanish or another language? Can you hammer a nail, work a computer, or like to work with children? These are just a few skills donated by our volunteers. Enrich your life by helping others. Consider volunteering for one of our Programs. Current volunteer opportunities are listed below. We make every effort not only to accommodate the schedules of our volunteers but to match their interests with an appropriate program.
If you have any questions about our volunteer opportunities, please contact Lynn Arndt, Director of Development and Volunteer Services
