More Volunteer Opportunities

AccentureWhile A-SPAN has volunteer programs that function on a regularly scheduled basis, we also have other flexible or seasonal volunteer opportunities that can be modified to fit your schedule. Contact Amanda Mark at amark@a-span.org or 703-228-7813 if you’d like to get involved in any of the following opportunities.

Client Companion/Mentor

As-needed basis

Often, A-SPAN matches committed, responsible volunteers with clients in our Permanent Supportive Housing program who request help in running daily errands, including trips to the grocery store and to medical appointments, or assisting with resume building, reading and writing skills, job hunting, etc. This is a direct service position for adults only, and involves considerable one-on-one contact with clients. A high level of patience, respect and understanding is required for this opportunity, but the rewards are great.

Sponsor a Client Birthday

As Needed

Volunteers can sponsor the birthday of a client in our Permanent Supportive Housing program.  Provide small gifts which could include baked goods, birthday cards, gift cards, etc.  This is a great way to make a client feel special on their special day.

Client Holiday Sponsor

Annually, November – December

A-SPAN works with over 50 individuals in our Permanent Supportive Housing program who require support and assistance to be continually successful, especially during the holiday season. In an effort to meet their needs, we seek Client Holiday Sponsors: volunteers and supporters who would like to contribute towards fulfilling a client’s holiday needs.
