Volunteer to serve people with developmental disabilities and mental health needs with CRi
Help Decorate Residents’ homes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, & the Holiday Season!
For the past 45 years, CRi (Choice. Respect. Independence) has provided resources to people with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, as well as services for at-risk youth who are homeless, precariously-housed, and/or aging out of foster care.
The Adopt-a-Home project lets resident participate in the holiday spirit and brings joy to residents, staff and neighbors.
Decorations can be as simple as a carved pumpkin, a wreath, or a garland on the front door.
Or get creative with a spooky cemetery scene, turning a lawn into a pumpkin patch, or stringing up lights to shine up the night. (String lights are a HUGE hit at all of CRi’s group homes.)
Decorations can be homemade or purchased. The more you want to include, the better. Please make sure they are able to withstand the weather for the holiday month and are NOT specific to any religious celebration to respect the individual beliefs of the residents.
While volunteers are not allowed indoors, if the volunteer chooses to provide indoor decorations, these can be arranged to be given to staff to hang indoors at a later date.
We welcome you to bring your creative ideas. Spread joy across the community this Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Holiday Season!
