Joy's Story

Joy knew she could never be a typical retiree, so a few weeks after the end of her 40-year teaching career, she called Tabitha. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do or how she could serve; all she knew is that she wanted to continue making a difference in her community.

Two years later, Joy is a seasoned Tabitha volunteer. She delivers a monthly Meals on Wheels route, stops in every week to call Bingo, occasionally plays the piano during chapel and has made many new friendships among the Elders she’s met along the way.

Not everyone can commit as much time as Joy, but that’s the best part about volunteering at Tabitha. There’s a job for every person, talent and schedule. Check us out today to learn how you can make a real difference to someone in your community.
 

Why Tabitha

Volunteer opportunities at Tabitha are limitless! Wherever your passions lie, we have a place for you. Some of our most popular volunteer opportunities include:
 

Meals on Wheels (Lincoln)

When you deliver Meals on Wheels, you help Elders remain in their homes by providing a hot, noon meal. You can help daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or as an on-call driver. Routes take about 90 minutes and begin at 10:45 a.m. A reliable automobile, valid driver's license and proof of insurance are required.
 

Hospice (all regions)

Tabitha Hospice volunteers provide support to clients in the last stages of life, and their families. Volunteers may offer respite care, bereavement support, companionship, light housekeeping, or office/clerical support. Volunteers visit clients in Tabitha Living Communities, other care facilities or clients' homes. After your hospice volunteer application is approved, specialized training is provided to prepare you for this unique and rewarding opportunity.
