Community Rehabilitation Clinic
What is Community Rehabilitation Clinic?
Come volunteer at the Community Rehabilitation Clinic to provide volunteer service for individuals receiving physical therapy services at the CRC. The Community Rehabilitation Clinic serves individuals below the poverty line and provides them with an opportunity for healing that otherwise might not be possible.
Medical Interpreting: Many of the patients we see at the clinic speak Spanish, but we have also had Russian-, Portuguese-, Haitian Creole-, and Mandarin-speaking patients. If you speak a foreign language and would like to join our on-call interpreter list, please fill out this form. The clinic personnel will reach out to you when we have a need for your language.

We have volunteers from a broad range of majors and class standings, but volunteers with experience with exercise, or those interested in the physical therapy, occupational therapy, or medical fields are preferred.
Volunteers commit to a consistent weekly schedule of at least 1 hour per week. Hours are based on volunteer availability and preference, but it is recommended to plan your volunteering time for at least a 2 hour block to maximize your experience and the amount of help you can be to the clinic. Especially for Spanish interpretation, consistency is essential so the clinic can plan for how many interpreters will be needed.
Training will be completed through the CRC once you begin volunteering.
