Serving as a volunteer is a very rewarding endeavor. Giving of your time and talent to improve the quality of life of others is proven to improve our satisfaction with our own lives, our health, and our emotional well-being. When we help others, we help ourselves.
Redstone offers a wide range of opportunities for people who are interested in volunteerism. If you would like to share your time to touch lives and benefit your community, Redstone may be the ideal place for you.
How much time is required?
Our volunteer positions can fit into a range of schedules. Whether you prefer to help us weekly, monthly or on an “on call” basis, there are volunteer options at Redstone. We will help you find one that fits well with your other activities and responsibilities.
What kind of volunteer opportunities are available?
Many volunteer positions are available both at Redstone and with Redstone@Home. Each one is tailored to fit the needs of both the facility and the volunteer. The amount of time committed depends on the opportunity chosen. Some choose to volunteer on a weekly or monthly basis, with hours ranging from one to several. We will work with you to find a place where you feel comfortable and ready to give of yourself and your talents in just the right way. Our goal is to match you with an opportunity that fits your schedule!

How will I know what to do?
Orientation is provided to all of our volunteers. You will have a chance to meet with one of our volunteer coordinators, tour our communities, and find out about Redstone and the work volunteers do. Once we find a volunteer position that suits your interests and schedule, we will help you to learn that job and provide the resources and support you need to work with our residents and staff.
Where can I volunteer?
Volunteers serve in a variety of capacities at each of our three communities in Greensburg, North Huntingdon, and Murrysville.
How old do I need to be?
Traditional volunteers need to be at least 15 years old. We are organizing a Junior Volunteer Club to involve 12 to 14 year olds in our programs. Contact us for more information.
How do I get started?
Contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator by calling 724-832-8400 X 2387 to get the process started. You can also drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have you come in for an interview and to fill out some paperwork. All volunteers must undergo a background check, TB testing, as well as provide proof of COVID and Flu vaccinations. Your cooperation helps us to create a secure environment for our residents.
