Donate Your Time and Talent

Volunteers are integral members of our communities. They enhance the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of our residents and clients. We appreciate those who can only donate a few hours on one-time projects, as well as those who are looking for a more long-term opportunity. The Service Group  of MHCO, established in 1954, continues to provide significant support to our elders.

What role does a volunteer fill at Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio?
Working in conjunction with the MHCO staff, you can share your time and talent with residents in our communities or our home-bound clients in a variety of ways.

In 2016 more than 380 volunteers contributed over 7,000 hours of time.  Our Spring 2016 issue of The Vine   provides more information on our volunteer programs and who volunteers.

Some examples of volunteer opportunities on our campuses include:

  • Do you love to talk about God, current events or politics? Put that talent to good use by leading a discussion group.
  • Are you a board game aficionado or love playing cards? We are looking for volunteers to play table games with residents.
  • Is party or event planning your specialty? We need help hosting programs for our residents.
  • Do you play piano or are you a part of a performing group? We'd love to have you share your talents with our residents.
  • Are you an outdoor person who likes to garden, help with weeding or watering?

If you prefer more one-on-one interactions, you could:

  • Read to those with visual impairments.
  • Deliver mail to residents.
  • Deliver Mobile Meals.
  • Pass out evening snacks.
  • Pass out water.
  • Assist elders to chapel for worship.
  • Take photos during activities.

Other on- and off-campus volunteer roles are:

  • Help accompany residents on outings.
  • Provide transportation for elders living in their own homes in the community.


We can tailor a volunteer position to best use your interests, skills, and talents. You may complete our online application  below or call us directly.
