Become a Volunteer

Whether you’re interested in volunteering long-term or looking for a one-time team building activity, volunteering at CCRI is a great way to give back to the community and enhance the lives of the people we serve—all while having fun!   

We have opportunities for individuals and groups of any size. Check out our current volunteer needs below. If you don’t see something that fits your skill set and interests, contact us so we can try to find a project for you!  

To get started, complete the volunteer application below.

Volunteer Opportunities

Meals with Meaning

Like to cook? Or are you looking for a fun team-building activity? When you prepare meals for the folks we serve, you’re not only giving the gift of a nutritious and delicious meal, but you’re also giving our team members more time to spend with our clients.

Spring/Fall Clean Up

Volunteers are instrumental in helping us rake leaves, wash windows, organize garages, and other tasks as needed to keep our residential homes in top shape each spring and fall. This is a perfect opportunity for an office team building or “volunteer day” project.

Life Enrichment Volunteers

Our life enrichment activities include everything from dancing and karaoke to arts and crafts to bingo and game nights. Have fun while giving back by sharing your interests and talents as a life enrichment volunteer.

Student Volunteer Program

If you’re a college or high school student (age 16 or older) who needs 10 or more volunteer hours to fulfill a school or class requirement, you can apply for CCRI’s Student Volunteer Program. In-home care volunteering provides a unique, hands-on experience working directly with the people we serve. We offer flexible, student-friendly shifts, but spaces available each semester are limited. A background check and orientation session are required before you can begin your first shift.

Tax Preparation Help

We need volunteers with tax preparation experience to help with our annual client tax day for about two hours on a weekday in February or March. (The exact date will be determined by volunteers’ availability.) The event will be held at our main office, 2903 15th St. S. in Moorhead.

Front Desk Help

We’re looking for someone who loves people and has office support skills to volunteer one to two hours a day, twice a week, at our main office reception desk. You’ll put your people skills to work greeting visitors, connecting them with the person they’re here to see, answering our main phone line and transferring calls.

Book Club

If you like to read and want to share your love of books with others, we’re seeking an individual to help facilitate a monthly book club for our clients. Meeting dates will be based on your availability.

Special Event Volunteers

Throughout the year, we host special client and fundraising events, such as prom, TableScapes, Tournament in the Tundra and our Halloween Candy Crawl, and we need volunteers to help with activities such as:

• Altering prom dresses
• Decorating
• Set-up and tear-down
• Running games
• Handing out candy

Follow us on Facebook for current event opportunities—or email our volunteer coordinator if you want to be informed of a specific event.
