“What a magnificent volunteer experience I have had since the opening of the Reinhart House.” – Babs Cohen

Since June 2014, the Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House has supported more than 4,000 families. With only 1-4 staff members supporting our operation, we are dependent on dedicated volunteers who are sensitive to the needs of our families.

Volunteers can support the Reinhart Guest House mission by helping us answer phone calls, manage our welcome desk, greet and support families daily needs, perform light housekeeping duties, write thank-you notes,  prepare meals, support administrative projects, to name a few important jobs.

For more information about group or individual volunteer opportunities, please contact the Reinhart Guest House at 804-287-7300 or reinharthouse@bshsi.org. If you wish to pursue a more permanent volunteer position at the Guest House, please fill out form below.

Many employers will match volunteer hours. Please visit https://www.bsvaf.org/matchinggifts to see if your company participates in a philanthropy matching program. By completing a matching gifts form, you may be able to increase the impact of your contribution.
