Volunteer Opportunities

Man has three friends on whose company he relies. First, wealth which goes with him only while good fortune lasts. Second, his relatives; they go only as far as the grave, leave him there. The third friend, his good deeds, go with him beyond the grave.

It’s always time to help heal, rebuild, restore, and renew lives devastated by poverty, hopelessness, and despair. Please be a part of the solution for our families.

Resurrection House operates on a very tight budget with a staff of only four people. You can be a valuable resource for us and our families and truly make a difference!

We are  a  "beehive  of activity,” particularly on weekends, with volunteer groups coming on campus to offer services and hold parties/events for our families.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” After spending 26 years working fulltime in a successful banking career, Cathy Faulkner decided it was time to move her life’s focus from success in the workplace to something more significant. Cathy served on the Board of Directors for Resurrection House over five years ago. However, due to work and family responsibilities, she had to discontinue her involvement. Last year, she made the decision to change jobs, which gave her the time that she wanted to devote to community service. Returning to Resurrection House was the perfect fit, where she could help women who were striving to balance career and family – something she has done for 20 years. “I wanted the opportunity to share my faith and to share the many life skills I have learned and felt were necessary for a balanced home life and successful career”.

Now back on the Resurrection House Board, Cathy chairs the Adult Education and Life Skills program, where she organizes and schedules all of the weekly life skills classes the adult participants are required to attend. These classes range from income tax basics to etiquette. Further, she leads the Journey in Faith class. This class is a book study about women in the Bible. They discuss scripture, the similarities and differences of women now and in biblical times, and the struggles and victories all women experience. “This amazing opportunity has brought me face to face with the participants and made me even more aware of the miracles occurring each day in the Resurrection House. It is a blessing for me to be a part of such a dynamic organization.”

Thank you Cathy.
