Take the challenge. Join in. emPower in Hour!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at IMD Guest House. We have reset and restarted our volunteer opportunities to give you or your group safe ways to engage in service projects that encourage our guests. We’re calling it emPower in an Hour.

Join others in the challenge and press past the limitations. Though our Community Room is not open to the public just yet, we are staging safe volunteer activities here or we encourage you to gather virtually to do a project together. We are following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our hospital partners, and state directives.

Take the emPower in Hour Challenge! View our Amazon Wishlists that include emPower in an Hour Kits for challenge projects.

Contact our Manager of Volunteers and Programming at volunteer@imdguesthouse.org to get involved, share a recipe, or join the challenge.

Thank you for being a part of the IMD Guest House family.

Your kindness provides comfort

Volunteers provide the care of community to the guests they serve, and gain valuable skills in leadership and community outreach. We know your time is generous, there are no long term commitments required for volunteer projects at IMD Guest House. Some of our volunteers prefer single projects, while others desire to volunteer for weekly or monthly projects. Volunteer as often as your availability allows. Projects are designed to maximize meaningful impact for guests.
