Many of our program participants choose to engage with their community through volunteer opportunities. As volunteers, they gain a new view of their community, develop valuable work skills and experience a sense of empowerment by making a difference in the lives of others.
Volunteerism offers valuable work experience along with the satisfaction of working alongside others who also want to give back and make a difference.
Didlake has partnered with over 20 local not for profit businesses to offer volunteer opportunities that match the interests of our program participants.
Some of the volunteer opportunities our Day Support Services participants have enjoyed include:
- Culpeper Health and Rehabilitation: We bring an activity and/or craft to complete with the residents. We also visit residents in their rooms.
- Habitat for Humanity Restore in Manassas and Roanoke: We sweep, dust, polish furniture, keep the store clean, price merchandise, stock shelves, and organize items.
- Keep Prince William Beautiful: Our site is Veterans Memorial Park where we remove trash and check signage to ensure proper placement.
- Weekend Food For Kids, Assistance League of Northern Virginia/Dominion Power: We break down empty cardboard boxes for recycling and assist with packing snacks for children.
We love to hear about new volunteer opportunities in the City of Roanoke and the Fauquier and Prince William County communities. Contact us to discuss your opportunity.
