Grace House is a Christian, faith-based, supportive-living type facility for women in early recovery from substance use disorders that is located in Canton, NY. It can house up to six women and has a full-time Director who lives in the House with the women . The House Mother is relieved by volunteers so that she can return to her home, husband, and faith community.
The House, established in January 2019, has always relied on volunteers to help the Director as the solitary staff person. The pandemic has depleted those who have helped us in the past leaving the Director to bear the entire burden alone with some minimal help from Board members. Our current need, which is presented below, is in three areas and these areas could overlap.
For each area a volunteer would be thoroughly oriented. During this time of serious inflation and elevated gas prices, we have been blessed by the generous offer to create a special fund within our treasury to offer a mileage stipend to those who volunteer at Grace House and have need of this assistance.
We do not require background checks at this time, but references are required prior to volunteering.
We have many volunteering opportunities at Grace House. We provide trauma-informed care and ask that the in-person volunteers be strictly women unless working on a technical or maintenance project. Please fill out the form below.
If you are unable to volunteer with us we have donation opportunities as well.
