Donating Your Time and Talents
BHCHP offers a variety of opportunities for individuals looking to make a regular, weekly commitment to our program and our patients. Whether providing administrative support or engaging directly with patients, volunteers are vital to BHCHP's success. Although volunteers do not engage in direct clinical work, their contributions expand and complement the care we provide to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Hours - Weekdays during normal business hours; limited weekend and evening shifts may be available.
Commitment - Because we require immunization history and background checks, we can’t accommodate volunteering for one day only. BHCHP requests you come in on a regular schedule (same day/same time every week) over a six month period.
Location - Multiple sites in and around Boston.
