Kelly Keller ~ (402) 926-2680 ~ Kelly.Keller@aseracare.com
8710 Fredrick St, Omaha, NE 68124 ~ www.aseracare.com

Volunteers are needed to be Patient Companions. You will receive 12 hours of training (mixture of on-line and one group session) on the history and philosophy of hospice as well as how to be of most assistance to patients and their families as they face terminal illness. Volunteer needs include: reading aloud, playing games, making crafts, playing musical instruments, or sitting with patients and/or their families in support.  Additional opportunities could include writing life stories, making scrapbooks, videos, keepsakes, mementos, etc. for families to keep.  We are also looking for volunteers interested in companioning with family members after their loved ones have died.  We offer flexible schedules averaging 1 hr/wk with daytime, evening, and weekend opportunities but ask that volunteers make a minimum one-year commitment to our organization. Office help is also needed to answer phones, file, help put together mailings, among other administrative tasks. We ask that volunteers devote at least one hour a week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Groups can also adopt one of our facilities to create seasonal craft items or projects to help brighten patients’ days. Volunteers should have access to transportation and will need to pass a background check and drug screen.

Benson Area Refugee Task Force (BART)

Shannon Linehan ~ (703)244-1143 ~ BensonRefugeeTF@gmail.com

The Benson Area Refugee Task Force, BART, is a group of volunteers from Benson who works with refugees. We provide Citizenship, Computer, Health, and English Classes to Refugees. We also watch the children of our adult students during class. Furthermore, we have drives throughout the year, and several Clothing Closets for refugee families. We are always trying to think of new ways to help the refugee communities succeed. Since we are entirely volunteer based, we need volunteers for everything that we do.
Knowledge of Karen, Kachin, Nepali, or Burmese languages would be incredibly helpful.
