House of Ruth

Opening to Volunteers Again!

House of Ruth is starting to open up to vaccinated volunteers; and perhaps that is you? Right now, we are in need of individuals or groups that can help with:

  • Arts & Crafts (for example: teaching a class on knitting, crocheting, or hosting a Paint & Sip (with juice/soda to sip!))
  • Computer skills–teaching the clients how to create emails, navigate simple computer tasks
  • Job Readiness (resume writing, interviewing skills, how to keep employment once you are hired)
  • Self-Care activities
  • Motivational Speakers
  • Attorneys that can give general advice on custody issues
  • Attorneys that can give general advice on end-of-life issues

We are ready to accept in-person volunteers; the weekdays (mornings in particular) are when we hold most of our group classes. If you know someone, or if you would like to volunteer yourself, contact Elizabeth Kiker at ekiker@houseofruth.org or call 202-597-5803.
