We are always looking for individuals who are dedicated to serving our Service Members and their families. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available to help build and grow Rick's Place. Whether you are serving as an individual volunteer or as part of a small group, you provide valuable assistance to RHF. 

The most common volunteer opportunities are listed below.

Nourish & Flourish: Our gardening program allows volunteers to grow vegetables in a community garden setting. Volunteers will plant and tend the garden throughout the season. This is to include watering, weeding and harvesting. What a sense of accomplishment!! Garden volunteers will have an opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labor through fellowship meals and/or approval to take produce home.   We will even share with you how to prepare and preserve what we grow.

Messy Mondays-A weekly outdoor art program designed for preschoolers to awaken their creative abilities. Volunteers will assist the Resident Artist in preparation and set up prior to the event. Volunteers will assist children and their parents as needed during the event. Volunteers will also help clean up and put away supplies when the event ends.

John Deere Therapy-If you find it relaxing to mow the grass, we have the volunteer opportunity for you! We are always in the market for ground keeper. We need volunteers to drive mowers and weed eaters.

Carpenter-We are in need of carpenters to help complete some building projects on the grounds. You need to possess knowledge of the use of carpentry tools or have the ability to follow directions from the team lead.  

Event Volunteer-We need volunteers to help with on-site events.  This volunteer may be assisting with parking, the kid’s zip line, registration, set- up and clean- up, or outreach opportunities.

General Labor-This volunteer may be clearing bush, painting or helping maintain the Herrema House. There are always a wide variety of things that need to be done on a daily basis at Rick’s Place.
