Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Please Note (COVID-19 Update): In order to protect the health and safety of our Veteran community and minimize risk, the New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) has decided to suspend all volunteer service until further notice. Please revisit this page for continuing updates regarding any changes to the volunteer program and NECHV’s ability to reincorporate volunteers into the building. For any and all questions, please contact Adrienne Kaplowitz at community.support@nechv.org.

Individual Opportunities: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner Meal Service
Assist NECHV kitchen staff by serving breakfast/lunch/dinner any day of the week. This work is performed on-site at 17 Court Street in downtown Boston. 5-7 volunteers are utilized behind the line to serve the meal. Below are the times for each meal:

  • Weekdays
    • Lunch: 11:30am – 12:45pm
    • Dinner: 4:30pm – 5:45pm
  • Weekends
    • Breakfast: 7:30am – 9:30am
    • Dinner: 4:00pm – 5:00pm

Fill-In Meal Service
For those who live or work near the Center’s location in downtown Boston, please consider becoming a fill-in meal server. Occasionally, NECHV needs last-minute help for meal services and/or other projects. When this situation arises, we reach out to fill-in meal service volunteers to build a complete roster so that the kitchen staff is adequately supported.

Skill-Based Volunteerism
