Be a Friend/Mentor to Someone in Need

Friendship is a powerful medicine and making friends to help change lives is what Compeer is all about. Through Compeer of the Lehigh Valley we match volunteers from the community with members in need of friendship. Our volunteers spend a minimum of four hours a month (1 hour a week) with a member who is in stable mental health recovery engaging in activities they both enjoy. Volunteers and their matches can do a variety of things together such as going for a walk, chatting over a cup of coffee, talking, playing cards, etc. Volunteers and their matches determine the activities, time, and place to meet, just like you would in a regular friendship. Volunteering with our program helps our members feel less lonely and isolated, and often result in true friendships that last a lifetime. Compeer of the Lehigh Valley has also added a similar service for veterans, called CompeerCorps. Compeer Corps was designed to create a network of military veterans to provide peer mentoring friendships to guardian service members. The goals of the CompeerCorps are to enhance the veteran's self-esteem and self-worth, improve connectedness to civilian society, reduce dependency on emergency services, reduce stigmas through friendship, and to create a strong and supportive environment to successfully lead our veterans on the road to recovery. They sacrificed so much for us, now lets do our part to show them that we still care and that they are just as important. If you know a veteran in need of a friendship, or a veteran who is interested in volunteering with other veterans, we are waiting to hear from them.

Volunteering at the Habitat ReStore

It's that time of year where donations of furniture, tools, and construction materials of all shapes and kinds are picking up, and here at the ReStore we do our very best to get those unique items ready for the public! At the ReStore you can have an exciting opportunity to make our community a better place through the upcycling of used furniture items and household materials. Ever paint a room in your house, and had some cans leftover? Have you done a remodel, wanted your kitchen cabinets to go to a good home instead of the landfill? The ReStore is the perfect place for that. We are looking for a group of service-minded people to assist us with our ReColor paint program - recycling latex paint and creating new colors, as well as the Donation Center, where we tackle exciting projects and make donated items available for purchase. We accept used home goods, furniture items, tools, hardware, and more, and make those items available for sale to the public at a fraction of the cost. All of the proceeds from these sales go directly to support Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization that is "building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter" in the Lehigh Valley. In fact, since its creation in 1989, HFHLV has placed over 120 families in good, affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley is a non-profit organization that works to build simple, decent homes for hardworking, disadvantaged families in our local community. They are an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), a global organization that has provided housing for more than 2 million people in communities in America and around the world. As one of 1,500 U.S. affiliates, Habitat Lehigh Valley embodies the mission and goals of HFHI at the local level. As a volunteer, you will be able to assist us in processing the new donations - often unique pieces - and it's a guarantee, no day is ever the same!

CASA seeks volunteers to speak up for children in need

Hundreds of children in our community are in foster care because of abuse, neglect and/ or trauma. Lehigh County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is seeking dedicated volunteers to speak up for the needs of those children. Lehigh County CASA volunteers provide important work to build hope and opportunities for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. This volunteer opportunity is unlike any other volunteer experience. Lehigh County CASA volunteers are sworn officers of the court and are considered the “eyes and ears” of the Judge. CASA volunteers not only advocate for the best interests of the child in court, they also visit the child at home or in placement, monitor how the child is doing in school, observe visitations between the child and parents, and keep in regular contact with the child. The relationship they build gives a different perspective for the Judge to consider in each case, regarding what is in that child's best interests. For more information on how to get involved with Lehigh County CASA, contact the CASA office at (610) 782-3858 or email: CASA@lehighcounty.org.

Help your neighbors. Even those you have not met. Yet.

Disaster Action Teams (where I started and still think it is among the more exciting things we do) provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.

Cistern Consultant for Farm's original water source

Flint Hill Farm Educational Center dates to about 1850. The original source of water on the farm was through gathering water in the farm's three cisterns. One is near the barn, the other two are near the farm house. One of the cisterns is accessible through a well pump. The second was at the corner of the sun porch. During renovation, the access to that cistern was covered up. It is the desire of the Educational Center to resurrect that cistern and reconnect the drain pipes from the roof to it. The third cistern is supposedly under a wooden floor in what is now the tack room near the barn. Reclaiming these cisterns for their original purpose would be an excellent educational opportunity for students or a group in the community. The Educational Center, as a model of a sustainable farm to our local schools, would greatly benefit from having these again in working order. Individual or group would need to have knowledge of construction, use of tools, mason skills, and a willingness to be creative.

Be a Friend/Mentor to Someone in Need in Bangor area

Friendship is a powerful medicine and making friends to help change lives is what Compeer is all about. Through Compeer of the Lehigh Valley we match volunteers from the community with members in need of friendship. Our volunteers spend a minimum of four hours a month (1 hour a week) with a member who is in stable mental health recovery engaging in activities they both enjoy. Volunteers and their matches can do a variety of things together such as going for a walk, chatting over a cup of coffee, talking, playing cards, etc. Volunteers and their matches determine the activities, time, and place to meet, just like you would in a regular friendship. Volunteering with our program helps our members feel less lonely and isolated, and often result in true friendships that last a lifetime. Compeer of the Lehigh Valley has also added a similar service for veterans, called CompeerCorps. Compeer Corps was designed to create a network of military veterans to provide peer mentoring friendships to guardian service members. The goals of the CompeerCorps are to enhance the veteran's self-esteem and self-worth, improve connectedness to civilian society, reduce dependency on emergency services, reduce stigmas through friendship, and to create a strong and supportive environment to successfully lead our veterans on the road to recovery. They sacrificed so much for us, now lets do our part to show them that we still care and that they are just as important. If you know a veteran in need of a friendship, or a veteran who is interested in volunteering with other veterans, we are waiting to hear from them.
