Volunteer at Greater Seacoast Community Health

Volunteers are critical for us as we work to improve the health and well-being of our Seacoast community. Our Portsmouth and Somersworth health and family centers have a variety of volunteer opportunities, ranging from providing medical care, child care, office support, and more.

Some volunteer opportunities, including child care, have been on hold, but we are now ramping family programs back up, so please let us know you’re interested in helping.
