While many members of the Bangor region and its area communities may already have full-time employment, that doesn’t mean they can’t still be part of the OHI family. Our diverse presence throughout central Maine makes it fun and easy to volunteer in a variety of settings. Whether it’s fundraising, athletic or recreational events, there are activities for everyone to enjoy. We certainly welcome anyone who wants to be a part of the excitement.
OHI is strongly involved with Maine Special Olympics and participates in a variety of games throughout the year. Many of our support staff volunteer or serve as coaches to the teams, with some even playing on the teams themselves through a Unified Partner Participation program. Special Olympics give volunteers the opportunity to assist people in community-related events while having fun with athletic competition. Volunteering also means the chance to travel with the team during away games. No special skills are needed to volunteer, although a background check as well as an online training needs to be completed.
Our summers are punctuated by our yearly trip to Camp Capella. Located on Phillips Lake in Holden, Camp Capella’s mission is to provide recreational and educational opportunities for people with disabilities. The week is filled with games, food and water sports and is an excellent chance for staff and volunteers alike to spend social time with the people we support. Volunteers can help with everything from food preparation to planning and even leading games and activities.
Brewer Area Food Pantry
OHI opened the Brewer Area Food Pantry Nov. 25, 2013, at 222 North Main Street. The food pantry is open to residents of Brewer and Eddington, and provides a volunteer opportunity not only for community members but for the people we support as well. Financial and food donations are always welcome, but volunteering time ensures that the food pantry stays adequately staffed. Working at the food pantry not only gives the people we support the chance to give back to the community, but to also establish new friendships with other volunteers.

These are just a few examples of how you can get involved with OHI outside of employment. We welcome everyone regardless of skillsets or ability and ask only that you bring with you a positive attitude and the desire to help. If you would like more information on how you can volunteer, please contact the human resources manager at 605-1249.
