Volunteer Opportunities at New Hope Center

Ways to Help

As a peer-support organization, our programs depend on volunteers in order to be successful. There are numerous ways to partner with us and serve those in grief. Some involve providing compassionate care and support. Others involve administrative support, event planning, raising funds, and community outreach. Would you like to use your skills and life experiences to bring hope and help to others?

Participants benefit from hearing stories of hope and healing.   If you are ready to offer encouragement and wisdom to others, you may want to serve. Opportunities to serve include the following areas:

  • Facilitator
    •  Workshops
    • Ongoing Support Groups
  • Speaker
  • Peer Mentor
  • Registration Assistant
  • Greeting & Hospitality Assistant

These positions do require a certain amount of time and healing before serving.  All of our facilitators and speakers receive training.

Circles of Hope provides compassionate support for the grieving family by investing in children, teens, supporting parents, and strengthening the family. 

We provide age-appropriate activities and discussions for kids while providing education and support for their parent(s).

If you love working with kids and families, you can volunteer to:

  • Plan fun activities.
  • Lead discussions.
  • Give loving support to children and parents during this difficult time.

Our office in Northville is a hub of activity and is often the first point of contact for those suffering the loss of a loved one.   Volunteers in our office help connect grievers to our workshops and support services.  Your talents can be utilized by:

  • Taking/returning phone calls
  • Providing administrative support
  • Helping with day-to-day tasks
  • General and specific opportunities are available

New Hope Center is only able to provide grief support services at no cost because of the generosity of others. Our funding comes from individual donors, business sponsorships, grants, and fundraising events. We need high-energy individuals who feel comfortable engaging the community in our mission through financial and in-kind contributions. Volunteers can also plan “fun”raisers, which are social events where participants collect a financial contribution to New Hope before participating.

Special event volunteers have a great time helping plan fundraisers, social outings, or volunteer appreciation events. They also have a great time assisting at events by greeting and registering guests, selling raffle tickets, helping at auctions, as well as doing set-up and cleanup.
