Looking for a way to lift up the full humanity of all God’s children? Join Calvary’s Faith in Action team by serving as the Raphael House Liaison. Raphael House is one of Calvary’s Matthew 25 Partners for Change. The RH Liaison is in regular contact with Raphael House staff about volunteer opportunities and also attends monthly Faith in Action Meetings to collaborate with other Matthew 25 Partners for Change liaisons and the FIA committee. Throughout COVID-19 this partnership has been largely virtual, but as restrictions lift you can anticipate coordinating volunteers for three Family Parties (Halloween, Spring Carnival, 4th of July) and once-a-month Community Chef Nights. Each liaison completes an Annual Evaluation of Calvary’s relationship with RH that outlines the years’ volunteer activities and impact. Interested? Please contact Mary Kate Wheeler at email@example.com or Robin Morjikian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Time Commitment: Approximately 4-6 hours a month
