From the early years of the St. Edward Service League to the many current family members, parishes, churches, and friends of the Village, volunteers have always been a tremendous resource to The Village. They provide important support and services by offering their time, skills, and expertise. Volunteers run high-quality programs, provide cost savings to The Village, and bless The Village every day in generous, practical ways.

When it comes to your time, we know you have many choices and even more demands. Whether you’re a deacon or layman with a heart to serve, a crafty mom, a caring listener, a CPA, a great conversationalist, an avid reader, a jazz musician, or a student looking for meaningful service hours, The Village of St. Edward has just the right spot for you!

Opportunities are available at The Village of St. Edward at Fairlawn, The Village of St. Edward at Green, and The Village of St. Edward at Wadsworth. Individual volunteers must be at least 14 years old.  Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. We welcome groups of up to 15 people.

We care about our residents and we know you do too! To ensure a safe and fulfilling volunteer experience, and to comply with Ohio Department of Health requirements, volunteers visiting/working in resident rooms and those volunteering more than 10 hours per month must complete a TB test and background check prior to serving.

*Please Note: If you are completing service hours for work, school, or community group, that exceeds 10 hours you are not required to undergo TB testing before volunteering. However, if you choose to continue to volunteer following the completion of those hours, you will be required to complete the testing.

We have much good work to do. With your help, together we’ll accomplish even more!

Core Values

As a non-profit, faith-based organization, we place people above the financial interests.  Our decisions are based on what is best for our residents and community.  As such, we will never ask a resident to leave if they outlive their funds.

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone...”

Galatians 6:10

Because we are equal in God’s eyes, we treat patients, residents, family members, co-workers and all others with respect and courtesy, empowering each to be his/her best self while celebrating what makes each person unique.

“Be devoted to one another in love.  Honor one another above yourselves.”

                                                                                                                                                John 13:34-35

We adhere to the highest standards of honesty, ethical practices and transparency.  We strive to continuously improve, to follow through on our commitments, and to let Christ’s teachings guide us in all we do.

Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them, not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve...”

Peter 5:2

We are called to serve others, not as a job but as a vocation.  We are wholly committed to quality, and consider it a privilege to minister others.

 “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”                                                                                                                                                                 

1 Peter 4:10

Following Christ’s example, we treat each person with kindness, humility and empathy through our every word and deed.

“For this is my message you heard from the beginning:  We should love one another.”

1 John 3:11
