Volunteering for NHCO is mission focused: every opportunity is meant to help someone in need, either directly or indirectly. We are happy to provide many volunteer opportunities that are meaningful to and advance our mission. If a specific volunteer opportunity or time is not available for you, we will try to suggest other organizations that might be a better fit.
Group Volunteering Opportunities:
Groundskeeping: We rely on volunteers to keep the areas around our offices welcoming and well-maintained.
Sharing Projects: Organize a collection or distribute items such as coats, Thanksgiving dinners and school supplies to your neighbors in need at our distribution sites.
It’s so easy to help your neighbors in need!

Youth Volunteering Opportunities
NHCO is always happy to assist local students with their senior projects, Eagle Scout or other community service project and volunteer requirements. Please note that not every area or opportunity will be available at the time of your inquiry. If a specific volunteer opportunity or time is not available for you, we will try to suggest other organizations that might be a better fit.
