Spotlight on Volunteers

While Indwell grows, so does our volunteer base. In 2019, we had 152 volunteers who gave over 6,600 hours of their time! Volunteers add tremendous value to Indwell in such a wide variety of ways.

The most common area that people volunteer is supporting our tenant programs – from hosting tea times and other food-related activities to art or exercise groups.

Crystal, Ernie & Nancy, and Brad (top row L to R) have had to suspend their in-person activities for the time being, but some have been doing regular phone check-ins with tenants.

We are all looking forward to starting up those programs again (and in London, to launch volunteer-run tenant programs!).

People like Fred and Hank (bottom row L to R) share their expertise by serving on the Board and in fundraising capacities. We’re thankful they’ve been able to continue meeting virtually.

There are also groups that join us throughout the year often working on garden and building upkeep. “Many hands make light work” certainly holds true.

We’ll be in touch when we’re able to resume our volunteer roles, and when we’re ready to accept new volunteer applications again.

Stay tuned!

What you can do right now

During this crisis, Indwell is providing additional supports for tenants. We need your gifts now—even more than before—as we navigate through these challenges, and as we continue to provide communities of hope.

Now, more than ever, it is important that our tenants feel connected with others, even if they cannot be physically connected. Mail a card or note of encouragement to be shared with our tenants who may be feeling isolated at this time.

Indwell has established a special fund to address food security and increase wellness programs for tenants. It is important that they maintain their physical and mental health during this unsettling time of social distancing and self-isolation.

Pray

Please pray for Indwell’s tenants, especially those who struggle with isolation and loneliness during this time. Please remember our staff who provide direct support to our tenants.
