Volunteer Opportunities

Restoration Project is a grassroots, nonprofit organization. We rely on community volunteers and supporters to fulfill our mission of recovery and reintegration for individuals with mental illnesses and brain injuries.

Even if it’s only a few hours a week, we can use your help.

Volunteer at Our Vocational Program

Our Vocational Rehabilitation Program provides remedial, transitional employment, preparing program participants for meaningful jobs and integration back into the community.

Volunteers in the furniture program provide one-on-one support for program participants. Experience with teaching, finishing, and upholstering is helpful but not required. We’ll teach you.

Skilled woodworkers are needed to repair donated furniture before it’s upholstered or finished by our program participants.

Volunteer at Our Thrift Store

Volunteers are also needed to work in our thrift store.  We can always use help to organize and display items in the store, help at the cash register, or work online selling on Ebay or Etsy.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Restoration Project Vocational Rehabilitation Program or the Thrift Store, please email us or call our director, Eloise Newell or our store manager, Robert Young  by phone at 617-489-1000. If you do not reach us directly, be sure to leave a phone number, a brief summary of your interests and the best time to reach you.
