Join Us


We are looking for volunteers at Iris Park Apartments to help residents with multiple disabilities including blindness or visual impairment, to participate in recreational activities (e.g., attend a SeaDogs or Red Claws game, go to the beach, visit a library, drive to a swim class, share your expertise, go sailing with SailMaine, drive to the New England Blind/Visually Impaired Ski Festival in February at Sugarloaf, music, trivia or word games, attend a concert, go bowling, or just to visit a student or resident).

Help us improve the residents’ quality of life - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially through the various recreational activities we offer. If interested in volunteering contact Jaime Burns, Community Engagement Coordinator at jburns@theiris.org or (207) 518-5055. You may receive community service credit hours for your time as a volunteer and background checks are required.
