Community Service

Provide comfort and care to our families with your gift of time by participating in one of the volunteer activities below!  Opportunities are available for individuals or groups to earn between 2-4 hours through onsite or offsite activities.  This can be a one-time or reoccurring activity for volunteers.

Additional guidelines for community service volunteers

  • Due to the unique nature of volunteer placements, we are unable to accept court mandated community service volunteers.
  • Each individual, age 16 and up, will be checked against the National Sex Offender Public Registry.  No one who is a registered sex offender or who has been convicted of a crime against children will be allowed on RMH property.

How to sign up

Please complete our online community service volunteer application.

Each volunteer must complete our online Community Service application and select either the Service Learning or Community Service program.

Completing this application does not guarantee you community service hours at RMH. Please allow for up to ten business days for your application to be processed. Once the application has been processed and approved, an RMH staff member will contact you with next steps.
