Volunteer

At the Jewish Home and Care Center, Chai Point and Sarah Chudnow Community, we are committed to supporting our mission of providing our Jewish community with those services that enable our seniors or infirm to be part of a quality Jewish environment with comfort, meaning, independence and dignity.

We are proud to partner with staff and volunteers living out our mission and making a positive difference in the lives of our residents. Our volunteers age in range from 12 to 100 plus. We are always appreciative of volunteer help. You can make a difference!

No matter what your skills or talents are or how much time you have to share, we will find a rewarding volunteer opportunity for you. On the volunteer application, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us about your hobbies and talents. We would be happy to let you share them with our residents.
