Our active and engaged group of volunteers is one of Noble Horizons’ greatest assets. By sharing their time and talents they make a tremendous difference in the quality of life of our residents and just by being here bring a bit of the larger community into the Noble community.


There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities and if you have a particular interest or skill that you’d like to share, we’re happy to discuss it with you. Whether you have an hour to spare now and again or can volunteer on a regular basis, we’re eager to talk to you about what interests you. And we’d like to add your name to the guest list for our annual volunteer recognition dinner honoring our wonderful volunteers.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities at Noble Horizons call 860-435-9851 or fill out the Volunteer Form.

What Does a Volunteer Do?

  • Read A Book

    Many of our residents, especially those with limited vision, enjoy being read to. Volunteers find equal enjoyment in sharing their love of reading with fellow bibliophiles.

  • Bring An Animal Friend

    Dog lovers, whose best friends have been certified by Good Dogs or another obedience course, visit our residents who relish the chance to interact with friendly canines.

  • Help With Technical Issues

    Technologically-adept volunteers help our residents set up email accounts or learn to use social media.

  • Be a Host / Hostess

    Volunteers serve as host/hostesses at opening receptions for our frequent art shows.


    Becoming a special friend to a resident is an especially rewarding volunteer experience.

Gratitude is ATTITUDE

Ask Nina about her favorite volunteer role, and the answer is swift and assured--assuming the identity of Mrs. Claus, a role she reprises each year at the Festival of Trees. When you meet Nina you know this was the role she was born to play and given her jolly and joyous approach to life, she seems to rehearse for it all year long.

"Being Mrs. Claus and seeing the enjoyment in the eyes of the visiting groups isn't volunteering. I'm the one receiving the gift. I get back so much more than I give."

These tireless and longstanding efforts garnered her the Resident Volunteer Award, given to the person who has impacted the community through his or her volunteer efforts.

"As I've grown older the volunteer work I do has become more cottage oriented. I want to make things better and let people know that whatever your physical limitations, you can still be involved."
