 Volunteer Profiles


Chris R.

Chris is a retired photojournalist. Although he was looking forward to pursuing his hobbies in retirement, he still wanted to be of some use to others. When he happened upon a newspaper story about the neighbors helping neighbors movement, he followed up and called At Home by High and the rest is history. Chris provides weekly transportation to the store for some members. Read more about Chris here!

Mary has been volunteering for At Home By High for over a year. She’s helped moved many heavy objects, baked many amazing treats for our members, donated her handmade magnets and coasters, helped with companionship visits, and attending some of our coffee meet-ups. Read more about Mary here!


Tania P.

In Tania's previous day job, she worked closely with Senior Corps program directors across Ohio. She decided to start volunteering with At Home by High because she saw that there were older adults in her own neighborhood that could benefit from this type of support, and saw how rewarding this type of volunteering can be. Tania does a lot of yard work for our members. “It’s a nice way to get moving on my weekend mornings,” she says. Read more about Tania here
