We have over 200 mobile homes in this park, and just recently opened a new community center for our residents.  The new community center has a computer lab, exercise room, game room and meeting areas.  They are looking for volunteers:

  • Homework Help / Tutors – Teachers and volunteers are needed to assist students with homework and/or tutor them in their schoolwork
  • Hope Center Hosts – The Hope Center is a 3500 sf community center with a variety of activities, most of which are run by volunteers.  In order for the building to be open, at least three hosts are needed to check families in, be available for questions, and oversee activities.
  • Mentoring – Having an caring adult from outside of the family walk alongside a young person is one proven key to success!
  • ESL (ELL) Teachers – There are many cultures represented in mobile home communities.  Teaching English helps those newer to the United States to apply for jobs, get ahead, and become more a part of the world around them.
  • Computer Skills Training – When our new community center opens up in the spring, we will have need for volunteers who enjoy teaching computer skills in our new computer lab.
  • Lead a Group – Do you lead a Cub Scout pack?  How about a community sports league?  Like art or theater?  The young people of Maple Hill would be interested in getting involved with these types of activities and leadership is needed to make that a reality.
  • Create a program!  We know that there are a lot of creative ways that volunteers have come up with to help support the families of Maple Hill Estates.  You might have a great idea for something that could be started.  If so, contact us and let’s see if it can happen!
  • Hospitality/ Serve Meals:  Through out the year there are a number of programs that youth and adults gather around a table to share a meal.  We need help shopping, preparing food and serving.  The dates and times vary. 
  • Light Maintenance/Cleaning:   The Hope Center a busy place and sometimes things break or some extra cleaning is needed.   Hours are flexible.
