Our volunteers are integral members of the Craine House Team. There are many ways in which your skills, time, interest and financial support can help us. Our volunteers provide assistance to staff members and residents in assigned roles. A Craine House volunteer is a person of integrity who understands the Craine House Mission, respects the lives of others regardless of their circumstances and believes in service to others.


We have two types of assigned roles:



Opportunities that are done on an as needed basis. Examples include: yard work, painting, wrapping of holiday gifts, etc.



Regularly scheduled time on a consistent basis to Craine House. Examples include: volunteering once a week for a two to three hour time frame to assist residents in their education - by tutoring in math, reading, editing papers, etc., or providing childcare while the mother attends a class being provided by Craine House staff, leading a book club or spending a couple of hours teaching residents to knit.

Interested in Volunteering?

If interested in special projects, email Ms. Trippi or call 317.925.2833. As these opportunities develop we will send out an email detailing the date, time and work to be accomplished. We do ask that you please contact us and let us know you are planning to help on the project presented. Additional contact information will be included in the volunteer opportunity email.


For those interested in an on-going opportunity, you will need to complete the volunteer application, obtain two (2) references and get a criminal history background check completed (paid for by volunteer). After the completion of this process you will attend an orientation with a staff member learning more about Craine House.
