Our volunteers bring the gift of their heart into the lives of our residents at Ovation Communities. Whether it is visits, pen pal friendships or helping on our many outings, our volunteers bring their compassion, love and generosity to our communities.
Spreading kindness to others
We welcome volunteers of all ages and from all parts of our community, regardless of religion. Our volunteers reflect the diversity of our resident population.
David Bitan, Director of Outreach and Engagement
My relationship with Gerald is a friendship. He is a friend much older than me, but our relationship is no different. I chose to do friendly visits because I thought it would be fun to meet someone at Ovation one-on-one. I learned that anyone can be a friend.
youth volunteer and MJDS student
I have enjoyed being here and talking, not only with other volunteers, but with residents as well. To hear stories and learn how people are connected is really special and makes it an encouraging place for me to volunteer.

It takes a special person to volunteer. Their visits mean so much.

I feel honored to spend time with Alex and Matan. I enjoy them learning with me, and they enjoy being with me. I hope this relationship continues in the future.
