Volunteer

It takes a village

We are so grateful to the many people who support our work and our community. If you are looking to make a meaningful contribution to youth, adults and their families who struggle with substance use disorder, we want to hear from you.

Because everyone has different talents and available time, we can work with people individually to find a good volunteer fit.

Please note that a DHS background check and confidentiality form is required to be an onsite volunteer. COVID-19 continues to challenge our ability to gather in person, but we are open to exploring virtual and socially distanced opportunities.

Below is a brief guide of volunteer roles and projects commonly available at Fora Health:

Volunteer Opportunities

Special Skills Instructor
Recovery involves building new habits and discovering joy in sober activities. Youth and adult Patients have enjoyed working with volunteer art teachers, fitness trainers, musicians, master gardeners and chefs, meditation instructors, personal shoppers, taking personal finance classes, doing make over hair salon to name a few!

Events Support
If cookies or decorating is what you live for, let’s talk. We would love assistance with marking cultural milestones and celebrating holidays of all kinds, helping to infuse even more hope and positivity into our programs.

Lobby Greeters
Lobby greeters warmly welcome guests to our facility and assist with questions, directions, helping to connect the guest with services as needed. They will also monitor the overall appearance of the facility entrance. Lobby greeters are an integral part of our mission in practicing radical kindness!

Organizing a Workplace Giving Campaign
Gather your colleagues and pool your resources to give back. You can also organize an in-kind donation drive, our patients frequently need basic items and high-quality unused toiletries. Don’t forget to check if your organization matches donations!

Give Back While Doing Everyday Tasks
You can also support our mission by donating funds from recycling at your local Bottle Drop Center, signing up for Fred Meyer Community Rewards, and choosing Fora Health as the benefactor for your Amazon Smile purchases. Contact development@forahealth.org for details.
