Although monetary contributions are always welcome, becoming a volunteer is a more personal, hands-on approach to helping others. At the House, valuable volunteers perform a variety of different activities. We love to be adopted by churches, Sunday school classes, Scout troops, civic groups, and such.
To arrange a tour or to receive further information, please call us at (865) 637-7475. Our online Volunteer Application is undergoing renovation. Call our Volunteer Coordinator or check out our volunteer opportunities below to find out about how flexible our volunteer programs can be — from teens to adults — we’re a great place to complete service hours for school. Some of the duties that are preformed by volunteers are:
