Individual Volunteer Opportunities
Welcome Center Hosts
Assist staff with daily activities in the Welcome Center, including checking guests in and out, preparing and delivering meals, laundry, answering phones, routine apartment checks, housekeeping, office assistance, and more. Daily volunteer activities depend on the volunteer’s personal preference, skills and talents. Shifts are flexible and normally are scheduled in 3 hours increments.
Prayer and Card Ministry Volunteers
97% of the families we serve request prayer support when they check in to Hospitality House of Tulsa. Our volunteers pray over the prayer cards and write encouraging notes to the families. We leave the cards in the apartments for them to read when they get home from a stressful day at the hospital. Volunteers wanting participate in the prayer card ministry can come in any time during Welcome Center hours.
Meals of Love
Nothing says “home” better than a freshly-cooked meal prepared by people who truly care. Meals of Love volunteers help ease the stress and financial burden for families in medical crisis and give them a “home away from home” by preparing meals. Meals may either be dropped off at the Welcome Center and delivered to the families’ apartments, or served family-style in the Welcome Center where guests are invited down to share in fellowship time. You can help by joining with your family, friends, co- workers or church group to provide meals for Hospitality House families, monthly, quarterly, or a time that works best with your schedule!
Day Room Hosts
Are you caring, compassionate, a good listener? Be a Day Room Host! Our new facility includes a day room, which serves the families on the waiting list that cannot immediately get into an over-night suite. Rather than having to sleep in waiting rooms or vehicles before checking into Hospitality House, families can come to the Day Room for a shower, a nap, a meal, prayer support, children’s activities, or to do laundry. Volunteers assist families with needs, manage the Day Room schedule, maintain a welcoming environment, and most of all…provide the listening ear and comforting presence that these families need during their difficult struggles. Shifts are flexible according to volunteer availability.
