Get Involved


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Synapse House. Our volunteers make a significant difference in the lives of each Clubhouse member and are instrumental in helping our organization fulfill its mission to Engage, Empower and Employ people affected by a stroke or other brain injury.

There are numerous ways to get involved, and several facets of our organization could benefit from your gift of time and talent.
