Please feel free to download these forms and bring them to your orientation, or you may choose to complete the forms during your orientation.

Step 3: Schedule your time to volunteer. You must be on our schedule to volunteer. All requests should be made via email (volunteer@joyshouse.org) or phone (Broad Ripple, 317-254-0828 | UIndy, 317-737-2515) at least 48 hours before the requested time. Please bear in mind that we have policies in place to limit the number of volunteers working with our Guests at one time. Therefore, we may or may not be able to accommodate your request.

To schedule a group for volunteering, please send an email to volunteer@joyshouse.org or call (Broad Ripple, 317-254-0828 | UIndy, 317-737-2515).
