We’re So Glad You are Here.
We could not make a fraction of the impact we are making today without people like you who wish to give of their time or financially partner with us. Below you can find several ways to join with us.
Volunteer Your Time
We have a variety of rewarding group or individual volunteer opportunities. Based on your skills and interests these opportunities range from caring for our toddlers and tutoring our students, to serving hot Thanksgiving meals, or beautifying one of our sites and many other opportunities in between. Your volunteerism helps our community learn, grow, and lead—at every stage of their life.
Please contact Allori Fernandes at (401) 421-1095 for more details.
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 (but are not limited to) painting, landscaping, food distribution, holiday gift wrapping and preparing meals for special events.
Please contact Allori Fernandes (401) 421-1095 for more details.
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.
Please contact Michelle Martins at (401) 421-1095 if you’d like to get involved or for more information.
Special Olympics Team Coach
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 Allori Fernandes at (401) 421-1095 if you are interested in volunteering or would like to lead any FireHawks activities.
Federal Hill House is actively recruiting senior volunteers for the agency’s Foster Grandparents (FGP) program. Income-eligible FGP’s earn a small stipend for up to 20 hours per week working in a local school or day care center.

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program
Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) volunteers work in our food pantries, obtain training to lead evidence-based health and wellness activities, or volunteer with our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. They tutor school age children, serve meals to older adults, and can provide transportation for their peers.

Partner with Us Financially
The bulk of funders today want organizations like ours to do more with less. But we want to do more with more. That’s where individual donations and corporate gifts come into play. Unrestricted giving, or even targeted giving to meet a specific need, helps us offer that higher level of service, at a higher quality, that often makes all the difference to our children, families, and elders. It can help us offer a scholarship to the family that struggles to make ends meet but doesn’t qualify for a child care subsidy. It can pay for that extra special field trip at the end of summer camp, or that apple picking field trip in the fall. It can buy us a new van to transport our senior and children, or help us upgrade our playgroup equipment or technology resources. It can pay for our community Thanksgiving dinner or buy gifts for children at holiday time.
When donors trust that we will meet the greatest need with their funds, we are able to be flexible and deliberate with how we use our scarce resources. And sometimes it’s those gifts that can make the greatest impact.
Want to financially partner with us? We always welcome monetary donations for general operating costs or specific programs. Your donations to Federal Hill House help us serve the community through our various programs and events.
Donate Now or mail donations directly to the agency: Federal Hill House, 9 Courtland Street, Providence, RI 02909.
