Volunteer for Respite Care Atlanta
Club RCA is a professionally led, volunteer-driven respite day program designed to support caregivers and their loved ones in a safe, caring and comfortable atmosphere. Respite Care Atlanta is seeking volunteers of all ages for our 3-day a week adult day program. Volunteers get to share their ideas and talents while helping to provide a fun and engaging environment for program participants
We host regular volunteer Info Sessions for prospective volunteers at our program location, Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church to give prospective volunteers a closer look at our programs, the volunteer roles, as well as a chance to ask questions and meet our team. Once fully onboarded, our volunteers then “shadow” a current volunteer for a first-time experience.
