Since the majority of Matheny patients are full-time residents, volunteers are needed days, evenings, and weekends. Individuals can serve as recreation assistants, classroom aides, tutors, friendly visitors to individuals, and more. Volunteer groups are invited to host parties for residents or participate in other special projects. In addition, individuals and groups interested in fundraising activities are welcomed. Matheny’s volunteer office strives to place helpers in positions which meet both their interests and availability. Matheny seeks responsible individuals who can commit to a volunteer assignment. Generally, helpers assist for one to two hours per week on a specified day, although other arrangements are available.
Volunteering at Matheny is not for everyone. The patients are noticeably disabled, and many are unable to speak without the aid of augmentative communication systems. Yet, underneath their physical difficulties, Matheny patients are everyday people who like the same music, games, sports, and movies as everyone else. For those who take the opportunity to discover each person’s individuality, the rewards are great.
For further information and a volunteer application, contact the volunteer services office at (908) 234-0011, ext. 1282 or email@example.com
