Volunteer at HighPointe

HighPointe Center relies on volunteers to maximize personal growth opportunities for our developmentally disabled clients.


For as little as a few hours a month, volunteers become an integral part of the quality care and tradition that make HighPointe a cut above. Our volunteers find they receive as much joy as they share.

“My two weeks at HighPointe really meant a lot to me because I am planning on majoring in special education. The two weeks have given me more experience interacting with people with special needs and it has definitely been the best experience so far! Each and every one of your clients is unforgettable and amazing! ” – Claire H.
