'Tis the Season to Give Back! Volunteer with us!

Are you looking for a fun way to get involved and give back? We have great opportunities for you!
Volunteering with Homeport is fun and a great way to meet new people and more importantly, invest in projects and people who need your investment.

We care about our communities and residents and want to provide the very best services and programs for them. But we can’t do it without your help! Opportunities with Homeport range from small to large and from one-day events to year-long projects. We have opportunities that fit the needs of individuals, families, service organizations and corporate teams.
