Manage all basic aspects of daily operations. Volunteers may cover a few hours, a full day, or an overnight shift. Overnight volunteers have a private room and bathroom, and overnight shifts include sleep time (although volunteers are responsible for responding to any calls or emergencies throughout the night).
Volunteers chose which weekends or shifts they cover and whether they can cover one night, two nights, or just a few hours. This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together!

- daily household cleaning and upkeep
- front desk coverage
- preparing guest rooms for new families.
Orientation and training are provided, and a staff member is always available on call for support.
