Paxton Ministries
Volunteers

Volunteers are Essential!

Each year, more than 600 volunteers donate more than 6,500 hours to Paxton Ministries.  Whether spending time playing games with residents or helping to keep our facilities looking fresh, volunteers are an anchor in providing a safe and caring place for many to call home.

What makes our program different?

We strive to align your unique interests, whether that is art, music, or computers, with residents who have the same interests!

Voluntary Service

Voluntary Service is an opportunity to serve at Paxton Ministries as a long-term volunteer. It is a great way to gain in-depth experience working with people with disabilities. Voluntary Service is open to adults of 18 years and older. These volunteers serve for six months to a year or more, live at Paxton Street Home, and work full or part-time alongside the staff. They receive free room and board and a bi-weekly stipend, ($75.00 for part-time-over 20 hours per week and $100.00 for full-time-over 40 hours per week), along with health benefits and vacation time if they work 40 hours per week. Past Voluntary Service members have helped with maintenance, resident activities, housekeeping, kitchen or receptionist duties, depending on their interests and our needs.  We would also welcome people working in development and social services.

If you have a heart for our ministry and would like to volunteer at Paxton, please email your cover letter and resume to Teresa Kurtz at TKurtz@paxtonmin.org.
