A Shelter for Cancer Families (ASCF) relies greatly on the generous donations of both time and talent from our volunteers. In fact, our volunteers donate more than 5000 hours to advance the organization's mission annually. Our volunteers work in a variety of roles for ASCF including facilitating cancer family celebrations throughout each family's cancer journey as well as serving as trained volunteer cancer family navigators and hospitality greeters for those who may reside in ASCF short-term residences.
Our volunteers are:
compassionate, generous and dedicated,
trained to help guide families along the cancer journey,
diverse and bring a variety of gifts to the community we serve,
discreet and recognize the importance of maintaining confidentiality, and
understanding of the unique challenges facing those with a cancer diagnosis.
To serve as a volunteer for A Shelter for Cancer Families. Please complete the following:
All persons 16 years old or older who want to volunteer for an ongoing volunteer placement must complete a volunteer application.
All volunteers 18 years old or older must submit to a criminal background check prior to receiving an ongoing volunteer placement. ASCF will notify each volunteer individually if and when this is required. If you have been notified, please complete your volunteer background check.
Children may be able to volunteer for some activities if they are accompanied by a supervising adult.
Additionally because many of the families we serve have compromised immune systems, ASCF requests that if you and/or a loved one may be ill that you refrain from participation in those activities that require direct contact until a full recovery is made.
