Thank you for your interest in getting involved by volunteering at Hamilton-Madison House! The information you provide on this form enables us to find a volunteer role(s) that best fit you and to ensure the safety of all volunteers, staff, program participants and clients. We currently have a variety of opportunities available.


We are delivering “touchless” pantry every other week in the Alfred E. Smith Houses. Volunteers are paired up and deliver pre-packed pantry bags to our Seniors. This project is from 9:30-11:30 AM. We are also serving dinners every week from 3:30-5PM.

We occasionally have weekend opportunities and are also assisting some partners who need volunteers.


We are looking for people to work with our Seniors on tablets. You may be assigned to a Senior to help one-on-one or asked to teach a class in an area of expertise - ie. Chair yoga, how to knit, healthy eating etc. If you speak English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish or Russian we can use your language skills as well.

We will have “pop-up” opportunities for all of our departments and in the past have used volunteers to assist with music lessons, tutoring and a variety of areas.

Please fill out the application below. We will send you new opportunities as they arise. If you have any questions, please contact us at or at (646) 939-5031.

In order to comply with current regulations, all in-person volunteers will need to provide proof of vaccination (copy of vaccination card) or a negative PCR test taken within one week of volunteering (this will have to be supplied each time volunteering if unvaccinated).  This takes effect August 16, 2021.

You can send your scanned cards to

Please reach out with any questions. Thank you.
