Can you color, paint, draw or enjoying helping those that do? You don’t need to be an artist for this opportunity!

We are seeking volunteers to assist with participants in our Art from the Heart program. This volunteer service can be completed between the hours of 10:00am and 2:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week. If you are interested in working with adults living with disabilities, we would love to have you join our team as a volunteer for this rewarding experience.

The Douglas Center offers work programs that include light manufacturing, sewing, packaging, pre-vocational training as well as developmental rehabilitation for adults of all ages.
