For information on our Associate Volunteer Program click here.

Beyond our Core and Associate Volunteers, we rely heavily on outside volunteers and supporters – you!  Our needs are as many and varied as your gifts and talents. We need folks to make regular commitments to house duty, meal prep, gardening and landscaping, and guest support. We ask that volunteers (excepting those that bring meals) be able to make a weekly commitment to us, at least one hour per week for at least six months. Regular volunteers add stability to the lives of our guests!


If you are interested in volunteering, please download and submit the  Volunteer Sign Up Sheet to Lydia’s House, PO Box 128808. Cincinnati, OH 45212.  Alternately, you can fill out the online form below or send an e-mail to volunteer@stlydiashouse.org.  Various volunteer positions available are listed below.
