Volunteer Opportunities

The people who call Hillside home depend on a caring community to survive. Thanks to the support of our volunteers, residents get to participate in activities like artwork and yoga. Volunteers can also opt to help with clerical duties or fundraising or take residents on relaxing strolls around the property.

If you’re interested in volunteering, contact our Program Director at 805-687-0788 x118 or fill out the volunteer application below and drop it off in person.

“I came to work for a couple of hours part-time and then I ended up staying because of the residents. The more I was here the more I liked being here. The staff is great! Everyone is so committed to making these people’s lives work. It is so fulfilling to be a part of helping the residents build enough confidence to gain independence in their lives.”

Gail Metzger, Director of Operations, 28 years of service

“I love the family atmosphere! Over the years I have enjoyed developing relationships with these unique and wonderful people and their families. I am inspired by the residents and their perseverance despite all of the challenges that they face.”

Susan Bradford, Recreational Therapist, 27 years of service
