At times we all need a helping hand or an encouraging word. When you volunteer at Able to Serve, you’ll experience the fun, friendship, and satisfaction of helping adults with special needs become more independent and use their abilities to serve others.

Program Volunteers

Monday-Friday (9am-3pm) Full day/half day opportunities

Helping participants learn to wash/dry clothes, use the computer, and actively experience the community are just a few of activities in our program. But most importantly, you’ll be a friend who encourages our participants to be the best they can be! 

Van Drivers
Monday-Friday (mornings half-day)
no special license required

Volunteering to drive is much more than operating a vehicle. It creates opportunities for participants to learn about their community. Outings are typically scheduled to leave in the morning around 10am and return back at the building by lunchtime. Shopping at BJ’s for Backpack Buddies, exercising at the First Baptist Gym, visiting a local business and bowling at Buffaloe Lanes South are just a few of our monthly outings. 

Special Events Volunteer
Scheduled throughout the year

Able to Serve hosts several fundraisers, two community dances, and many special activities (cookouts, Bible Camp, outdoor projects) each year. These events are in addition to the volunteers needed in our program. If you love organizing, decorating, working events, or this just fits best in your hectic schedule, we’ve got a place for you. 

Volunteer Instructors
Works around your schedule

If you enjoy teaching your favorite hobby, music, craft or skill, our participants are ready and willing to learn! We always find ways to have fun, whether it’s knitting, making greeting or Christmas cards, gardening/greenhouse, art, fitness, or cooking! Contact the office with a time that works with your schedule and supplies that we may need to purchase in advance. 

Communications Volunteer
Flexible schedule

Do you have experience in creating newsletters, brochures or informational flyers? Are you familiar with updating webpage information, working with Constant Contact, or using social media effectively? We need volunteers who will work closely with the Executive Director to produce a donor newsletter, brochures, as well as keep our online information updated. Most of these projects can be accomplished by email and online. 

Administrative Volunteer
Works around your schedule

Make your own hours Monday thru Friday, even if it is just a couple of hours a week. Nothing complicated or difficult. Computer skills would be very helpful, especially knowledge of QuickBooks, but not necessary. Again, you make your own hours. 

Church or Organizational Groups

We welcome church or organizational groups of all ages to spend the day or part of the day interacting with participants. Your group can plan games, crafts, snacks, and/or devotionals to bring, or your group can assist with activities that we plan. Contact our office at 919.779-5545 to coordinate dates, times, and activities.
