Individuals can:

  • Provide professional services such as graphic design, property appraisal, photography or printing. These can be one-time only or ongoing volunteer opportunities.
  • Host a demonstration class to teach residents a new skill or hobby. Our residents are eager to experience and learn new things.  You can teach cooking, gardening or art. Host a book club. Teach a card or board game. Demonstrate laundry folding tips or relaxation techniques. Share any of your favorite interests or talents.
  • Provide residents with essentials in “Welcome” baskets. They often arrive without these necessities because it is the very first time they are living independently.  You can assemble the household supplies into baskets filled with themed items, such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, food staples, etc.
  • Help us spread the word to raise awareness about Bluestem and its mission.

To get involved, go to our Volunteer form and send us a message.

Bluestem is also happy to accept in-kind donations. We are currently in need of commercial washers and dryers in working order and good condition.
