Encompass Community Supports Welcomes Volunteers!
We appreciate your interest and willingness to support us to fulfill our mission. We recognize that volunteers bring a diversity of talents, skills, and experiences that positively contribute to enhancing the lives of individuals. With few exceptions, we have no restrictions for volunteers due to age, race, gender, religion, education, income, experience, or any other protected category. We encourage the values of teamwork, quality in the performance of duties, innovation, and integrity.
“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve . . . you don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
Programs for Adults 60 and Above:
Do you like to tinker and repair things? Do you like retail sales? We can use volunteers with either skill! If you like to tinker, you can help by repairing and getting merchandise ready for sale. If you enjoy retail sales, you can assist by bringing merchandise from the warehouse to the store, displaying merchandise, assisting shoppers, and doing end-of-day closeouts. Currently, the store is open on Saturdays from 8:00 am until 2:00 PM.
We offer volunteer opportunities at our adult centers located in Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock counties! Opportunities vary with each center. Volunteer duties might include helping with day-to-day operations, engaging in social activities, lunchtime setup and cleanup, and assisting with special projects, fundraising, or events. Centers are open four days a week Monday – Thursday 10:00 am to 2:00 PM. Additionally, we seek volunteers that are musically inclined, interested in teaching arts and crafts, or have a talent to entertain others. Support our adults to live independently in their communities by volunteering at a center near you.
Work alongside the Volunteer Coordinator with basic office tasks including filing, copying, preparing mailings, maintaining calendars, assisting with events, assisting in developing posts for our Facebook pages, assist in preparing the newsletter Voice of Experience.

Long-Term Care Ombudsman Volunteer
The Long-Term Care Volunteer Ombudsman is a key component of Encompass Community Supports. Volunteers are skilled in problem-solving, diplomacy, empathy, communication, and good judgment. Duties include visiting long-term care facilities (located in Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock counties) and assisting in general office tasks. Volunteers undergo a criminal background check (including fingerprinting), a drug test, and a Virginia Department of Social Services/Child Protective Services Central Registry search. There is no charge to the volunteer for these background checks and drug tests.
