Volunteer with Mary’s Woods

Inspired by the vision and values of the Sisters of the Holy Names, Mary’s Woods is committed to exploring the journey of aging for all residents and community members. If you’re at least 16 years old (or 13-15 with a guardian present), you can be a part of the Mary’s Woods community by volunteering to help residents in our memory care areas. Volunteering is a great way to help others enjoy their day and find the personal joy of sharing your time and talent.

Please bring your unique talents and abilities to Mary’s Woods and join us in celebrating life.
