Family Services Volunteer
Provide services either at Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids in Brooklyn Center, or in a family’s personal home (when requested by a family). It is a hands-on experience with our Crescent Cove kids and families. Volunteers at the Respite & Hospice Home for Kids provide support for families through sibling care, household and yard upkeep, meal prep, and other various Crescent Cove staff requests. At times, Crescent Cove families request special services in their personal home when extra support is needed. Volunteers may provide meals, sibling care, basic household chores, run errands, or help with any request the family has to ease their day.
All Family Services Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. We ask that bereaved families wait at least one year before applying to volunteer. All Family Services Volunteers are required to pass a Net Study 2.0 background check. The volunteer will provide Crescent Cove with required personal information in order for the application to be processed. In addition, each volunteer will need to have his/her fingerprints scanned at a designated location within two weeks of completing the background check. The processing fee is $9.10, and is paid by the volunteer at the time of fingerprint scanning. In addition, all volunteers must attend an hour an in-person orientation, and complete one mentored shift before scheduling a volunteer shift in the Home.
On an on-call basis for events and other support activities. There is no required orientation needed to be a Friend Volunteer.
Group volunteers do not require an application or orientation. Volunteer services include meal preparation, grounds keeping, House upkeep, and other needs as they arise. There is no age requirement for outdoor work.
