Volunteer opportunities bring hundreds of individuals to Juliette Fowler Homes each year to provide thousands of hours of volunteer work on our campus and with our residents. Many corporate, church and school groups enjoy volunteering at Fowler because of the wide range of residents' ages and of the many hands on projects and/or resident activities available.

With three on campus residential programs and a 16-acre campus, Fowler offers both resident interaction and non-resident interaction volunteer opportunities. Groups and individuals are invited to participate in Fowler's volunteer program. Collection drives are also helpful to benefit those residents in need who live at Fowler.

Fowler thanks the many individuals, churches, schools, organizations and corporations that have brought hundreds of volunteers and thousands of hours in service to our residents.
