Volunteer

Westminster Canterbury Richmond has welcomed volunteers from the surrounding areas since the day our doors opened.

Teens, college students, men, women and families help us enhance services to residents and enrich the quality of life in our community. Volunteers support the work of the staff, help meet the social, emotional and psychological needs of the residents, and bring diverse energy to our campus.

We invite you to become a part of our volunteer team!
