Volunteer Resources
Waypoint's volunteers inspire hope, reduce isolation, enhance patient self-esteem, help eliminate stigma, and improve the quality of life for patients by sharing their time, knowledge, and generous hearts. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and volunteer for a variety of reasons. 

We offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers who are interested in assisting people who have mental illness with direct and in-direct care opportunities that include:
  • pet therapy
  • spiritual care visitors
  • entertainers
  • one-to-one visitors
  • activity assistants
  • income tax assistants

Volunteers are recruited using Best Practice Guidelines. They receive training and orientation prior to an assignment and further support, learning and supervision via a staff mentor.
