At Bello Machre, the possibilities are endless when you are a part of our Caring Hearts Volunteer Program. Creativity and imagination, mixed with initiative and a caring heart, can make the volunteer experience memorable for everyone. Your time and talents can make a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities. If you have a day or even a few hours – your support will bring a smile to someone’s face.

Get involved today! Our volunteer program offers many unique opportunities, allowing volunteers to dedicate their time doing something they love while also enriching the lives of others. Volunteer as a family, group, or individual – once or as an ongoing commitment. Individuals or groups can:

• Rake leaves, weed, mulch flower beds, or shovel snow at one of Bello Machre’s community homes
• Decorate one of Bello Machre’s community homes for the holiday season
• Plan a craft project or activity for one of our homes
• Spend quality time with one of the people we support as a “Friendly Visitor”
• Lead or assist with a Culinary Class for those who prepare meals in Bello Machre homes
• Assist with administrative tasks at our main Bello Machre campus
• Intern with one of our departments for Spring 2020
• Tutor one of the people we support in reading or math
• Be the smiling face that greets our visitors as the Front Desk Volunteer. Help to direct visitors, route phone calls, and assist with light administrative duties.
