Holy Angels welcomes individuals and groups to tour facilities and meet residents and staff at certain times during the year.
You can see firsthand the wonderful works of Holy Angels. Each tour is individually scheduled and hosted by a member of the staff. All tours and group visits are coordinated through the Volunteer Coordinator. Persons or groups wishing to visit for an academic purpose (class, internship or clinician interview) will be referred to specific program staff.
- Due to the medical conditions of many residents, Holy Angels is generally not able to accommodate tours during the cold and flu season of the year (January, February and March). Additionally, we ask that children under the age of 6 not be included in tours because these ages are most likely to carry the usual childhood illnesses.
- Tours can be scheduled only on certain days and at specified times, given the special needs of our residents.
Holy Angels provides speakers for church, civic and other organizations. Presentations include:
- A first-hand look at our organization as a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy. An opportunity for your group to learn about the complex and comprehensive programs of service available to the residents at Holy Angels.
- Ways to become involved at Holy Angels.
If your group wishes to assist Holy Angels with a hands-on work project (ex: wheelchair/vehicle cleaning; yard work; window cleaning) please realize that these activities are limited to certain seasons of the year, and require coordination and supervision under OSHA guidelines. To schedule a service project, please click here.
Certain activities with our residents may also offer opportunities for group involvement (ex: creative arts; horticulture therapy program and recreational activities). These projects are limited due to the training required to assist many of our residents, and by staffing conditions. When possible, the Volunteer Coordinator will coordinate on-site projects with the Corporate Services Division and Program staff. Click here for information about group service projects.
