Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in getting involved at the Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center?

There are a few ways to help out!


Your business or organization could plan a community service day here at EBCC. Projects we have hosted in the past include yard work/ cleanup, painting, power washing and more!

You, your business or organization could have a “goods drive” helping to donate some of the basic necessities our clients need. (Please see our wish list below).

We have a limited number of volunteer positions available here at the EBC Center. These positions require a Background Criminal Identification check. If you are interested in volunteering, please call the agency to see if any positions are available.


We are so grateful for our volunteers and would not be able to do the work we do without your generosity and support!
