A Shelter for Cancer Families (ASCF) is almost entirely run by 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 the celebration of special moments throughout the cancer journey as well as serving as trained volunteer cancer family navigators and hospitality greeters for those who may reside in ASCF temporary 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.

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.
