Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), in-person classes at the Stroke Comeback Center (in Vienna and Rockville) are suspended until further notice. However, our Virtual Programs are thriving! Check out our virtual programs under our "Programs" tab.
To assist survivors to reintegrate and re-engage into their community, the Stroke Comeback Center welcomes volunteers to help us reach our goal. Whether you have one hour or many hours to give, you are valuable to us; review the following table for some areas where you can help.
Don’t see what you are interested in? Call us and let’s talk. Share your special interest, time and talent and make the Center a fun and lively place to be.
|Clerical / Resource Center||We can use your help with a variety of office tasks such as filing, word processing and preparing mailings. Work in the Resource Center includes organizing and updating current materials, researching various topics such as recreational opportunities for people with disabilities, bookmarking pertinent internet sites for easy access, and keeping us on the cutting edge of what’s out there for survivors.|
|Computer Lab||Technology volunteers would assist participants in using the computers and the software in the lab on an individual basis. Some activities might include basic computer skills, accessing the internet or effectively using Center software. Our members vary in skill level from never touched a computer to software engineers. We can pair you accordingly.|
|Fundraising / Outreach||Are you good at just getting things done? If so, being an outreach or fundraising volunteer might be right for you. We are always in search of new ways to fund our mission. Volunteers assist with networking with service providers (retail, transportation, entertainment, etc.) in the community to meet the needs of our members. Or you can identify and reach out to donors and foundations. Creative solutions to finding services and funds are always welcome.|
|Marketing||Do you have an expertise in advertising? We would appreciate your time and energy helping us to more efficiently and effectively get our message out to the community at large.|
|Publishing||Are you knowledgeable in the world of publishing and authorware applications? We have developed treatment materials and “how to” manuals that we would like to make available to other clinicians. We could really use your help. Proceeds of the sales would go to assuring the continuation of services for all survivors.|
