- Contacting by phone, non-offending caregivers to complete a client satisfaction survey of their services received at Patsy’s House.
- Sorting through donations – stuffed animals, toys, juice and crackers.
- Ensuring that toy shelf, refrigerator, and crackers are stocked and ready for children and families.
- Assisting with community education programs and health fairs.
- Planting and maintaining flower beds.

- Assisting during special events – Pinwheels for Patsy’s House, Family Nights, etc…
- Assisting with maintenance needs – replacing lights (indoor and outdoor), shoveling snow, touch up painting, etc.
