Our direct care volunteers support the program participants and staff directly in our Residential Recovery Housing (North Shore of Boston, Massachusetts) and our Supportive Transitional Housing (Greater Hartford area of Connecticut)

Daytime

Opportunities are M-F 8am-12pm & 12pm-4pm. This shift helps with administrative tasks, cleaning, running errands and transportation for appointments. This is typically the busiest time in the home and staff are usually present.​

Evening

Opportunities are M-F 4pm-9pm. This shift helps with transportation from work or school, meal preparation, and the community dinner. Occasionally staff are present in the home.

Weekend 

Opportunities are Sat. & Sun. 8am-12pm, 12pm-4pm, and 4pm-9pm. This shift helps with transportation to and from appointments and home organization. This shift is usually quieter in the home and rarely has staff present.

Hope Lyfters

Hope Lyfters help transport the Amirah women to and from their work, school, groups, and appointments. There is great opportunity to create meaningful friendships on car rides together!
