Civic/Service groups can:

  • Invite us to speak at an upcoming meeting or event! We’d love to connect with your organization and let your members know about Bluestem’s vision and goals.
  • Sign up to organize and host holiday parties for our residents. Volunteer for one party or sponsor an entire year.
  • 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.
  • Plan an interior painting or spring cleanup day.
  • Fund or organize a fundraiser to support a Bluestem promotional event.
  • Organize a household-item drive to provide residents with much-needed items upon their arrival. They often arrive without these necessities because it is the very first time they are living independently.  Group members can then coordinate and assemble the collected household supplies into “Welcome” baskets filled with themed items, such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, food staples, etc.
  • Provide professional services such as graphic design, property appraisal, photography or printing. These can be one-time only or ongoing volunteer opportunities.
  • 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.
