How to Get Involved

Current Opportunities

Volunteer Tax Preparers

The 2017-2018 VITA season was a success! If you would like to help with tax preparation or greeting next season, please contact Roshni Darnal at 401-421-1095 for more information. We provide free training and daytime, evening, and weekend opportunities throughout tax season at ten locations across Providence. 

Health Promotion Coaches/Facilitators

Ever wanted to teach a class on staying healthy and active?  We need volunteers to be trained as group facilitators for our A Matter of Balance and Chronic Disease/Chronic Pain Self Management classes. Training times vary and classes run through the year. Contact Roshini Darnal at 401-421-1095 for more information. 

Join the Board of Directors

We are currently accepting applications for new Board positions. The Board of Directors meets once a month, on the 3rd Tuesday, from 5:00-6:30 pm.  We also ask that each Board member serve on a committee and commit to an additional two hours per month. For more information or to apply to join the Board, please email: Boardnominating@federalhillhouse.org.

Host a food, toy, or clothing drive

The holiday season can be very difficult for many families, so we raise funds and host drives for food, toys, and children's clothing. In 2017, we helped over 500 families with Thanksgiving baskets and gifts for Christmas. Year round, we can always use non-perishable foods, gift certificates to grocery stores, and children's clothes. Please contact Aura Caceras at 401-421-4722 for more information or would like to host a holiday drive. 

Coach for our Special Olympics Team

The Federal Hill FireHawks need you!  Started in 2010, the Federal Hill FireHawks is a small Special Olympics team that is committed to growing the "Providence Team". We need coaches and volunteers to help with various sports, including bowling, track & field and basketball. Please contact Roshni Darnal at 401-421-1095 if you are interested in volunteering or would like to lead any FireHawks activities. 

Community Service Projects

Do you have a group interested in giving back to the community?  We have many options for single time community service projects. Projects include painting, landscaping, food distribution, holiday gift wrapping and preparing meals for special events. Contact Kimberly Fernandez 401-421-4722 for more details.
