4hours/week. One morning or one afternoon a week. It is important that they are available to commit a determined day a week, for example, whoever goes on a Monday afternoons will always go on Monday afternoons, every week.


The House’s activity is structured in 3 areas, office support, maintenance and logistics activities with families. Although volunteers have their “preferred area”, everybody does a little bit of everything. For example, someone who mainly comes for activities with children will also review the warehouse, or preparare the rooms if necessary. The priority is that the families have at their disposal anything necessary to make their stay as comfortable as possible, so all volunteers will know all the basic procedures of the House (product replacement, warehouse review, preparation of rooms, checkin/checkout of families…). Thus, the person who comes to do activities during their 4-hour volunteer shift may spend three hours on activities and 1 hour on House logistics.

In short, it is important to have a versatile profile, flexibility, be open to lend support in the activities required by the House at all times


  • Office Support: answering the telephone, reception of visitors, preparation of documentation, communication activities, contact with companies, information and care for families, etc.
  • Logistics/maintenance: review of warehouses, control and replacement of equipment, preparation and review of rooms, laundry room, garden, etc.
  • Family activities: preparation and implementation of workshops, activities, games, parties…

Of course, depending on the personal/professional profile of each volunteer, they will be able to contribute their knowledge/skills.
