Volunteers helped make the vision of Calvin Community a reality in 1965, and they continue to assist us in planning our future and enhancing the quality of life at Calvin.

Every day, volunteers support our residents, staff and programming. Our volunteers provide knowledge and skills that help our Community fulfill the needs and desires of our residents. In return, our volunteers are rewarded with lessons and friendships that can only come from the experience of serving our residents.

Who Volunteers?

We have over 200 volunteers; they come from all walks of life. The diversity of their ages and experiences adds greatly to Calvin Community.

Many people grow into a volunteer role after visiting friend or relative at Calvin. Others come from churches, colleges and civic organizations. Even our Calvin residents volunteer.
