We are always in need of volunteers to perform a variety of tasks. Please contact CAH at (978) 531-9775 to discuss the following opportunities currently available.
We're always in need of community volunteers to enhance programs and services available
to families, assist in maintaining our shelters, help raise awareness of local homelessness and
housing issues, join in our fundraising efforts, lend a valuable skill or organize special projects.
Some CAH volunteer opportunities include:
Career Link Mentor – Career Link is a shelter-to-work program designed to provide
residents with career counseling, skills development, job search assistance, GED
tutoring, help with college entrance and financial aid applications and mentoring.
- Career Link is a great opportunity for companies and individuals alike to help a woman
from poverty to self sufficiency.
Administrative Support – CAH's offices are always busy and we love extra help with
our filing, scanning, data entry, general office tasks and special projects. The hours
are flexible and great for those with solid administrative skills including proficiency
with MS Office and knowledge of office equipment.
Shelter Maintenance and general cleaning – CAH has ongoing and seasonal needs
for volunteer groups or handy individuals. Our group projects are great for civic
organizations, churches, youth groups and community service learning programs.
Generally projects are short term and can be performed in 4-6 hours. Some examples
of group projects include planting our summer garden, performing general yard clean
up, painting, spring cleaning of our shelters, and snow removal.
Website Design – If you're an experienced and creative web designer we'd love to
discuss updating our agency site!
Social Media experts –Are you an avid user of Facebook, Twitter and You Tube? CAH
is working hard to create a social media presence and assistance with messaging,
posting tweets and expanding our reach would be invaluable.
Special projects including arts and crafts, food preparation demonstrations, health
and wellness activities, providing entertainment for our children and coordinating a
clothing, food or diaper drive in your town are great ways to provide help without a
regular ongoing commitment of time.

• Become involved in fundraising as a committee member joining our annual Raising he
Roof event planning team or development committee.
• Make a financial contribution through Igive, by personal check or credit card or
through a planned gift. Check with your employer to learn about matching gift.
