About Us

Volunteers

As many as 1,000 people volunteer with us each year, including individuals, groups, retirees, families, civic groups, students at elementary, junior and high schools and college levels, faith-based groups and businesses. Whether you volunteer as an individual or with a group, Enable’s Community Engagement Coordinator will ensure that each volunteer is screened and provided with the training necessary to having a successful volunteer experience.

 

Volunteer opportunities may include helping around our community homes, providing companionship, hosting and helping with events, driving people to and from appointments, working in the office at our headquarters, and more.

 

There are many reasons to volunteer — we’ll work with you to make it special:

  • Community service
  • Team building
  • Corporate community involvement
  • Individual fulfillment
  • Gold or Eagle Scout awards
  • Bar and Bat Mitzvah goals
  • And more!

Staying Busy, Staying Happy

Chris

Born with cerebral palsy, Chris began receiving services from Enable over 20 years ago when he moved into an Enable group home. He eventually gained the confidence to move out onto his own and, for the past seven years, has been living in his own apartment.

Now 45 years old, Chris loves the independence of living on his own, and has found many ways to stay active through Enable’s programs and resources. Whenever Chris wants to go out—whether to the mall, the movies, or to grab a bite to eat—he calls Access Link for a ride. He also loves to participate in community activities, play games, and work on arts and crafts projects through Enable’s Day Services.

Chris also works two part-time jobs—one as an elevator attendant for Sovereign Bank Arena, and the other as an office helper. “Work is one of the things I do that makes me the happiest,” said Chris. He considers himself a joker at heart and loves making people laugh. “I have a good sense of humor,” Chris shared. “People in my presence are always laughing at something I do or say.”
