Be a Volunteer

Due to Covid-19, our current volunteer opportunities are limited.

Making a difference in someone else’s life can make a difference in yours. Many of those we support are socially isolated; socialization has a tremendous impact for someone who is alone. Select the volunteer service that works best for you. The day-to-day outreach, companionship and assistance our volunteers give is an invaluable component of the support JFS is proud to provide to our clients.

Please email Robin Perley, Volunteer Coordinator, at or call 801-746-4334 for further information.

  • Exercise Partner Walk with a senior, around a park or their neighborhood.
