Become a volunteer!
Abbott House offers numerous opportunities to connect with children and individuals with disabilities. Perhaps you want to lend general office support or lead a workshop. We look forward to having you join the Abbott House family in whatever capacity works for you. Have an idea that you would like to share? Want to make a difference as a volunteer?
