ASSIST WITH FILING AT NORTHEAST HEARING AND SPEECH

Northeast Hearing and Speech (NHS) is an organization dedicated to helping people hear, speak, and communicate by providing speech-language and audiological evaluations and treatment to people of all ages. The organization seeks a volunteer to assist with filing at their office on 75 West Commercial Street in Portland. The volunteer will help out a few hours each week between 8:30am-4pm (any day(s) of the week) or 1-2 times per month. S/he will need to be able to work independently, file alphabetically, and sign a confidentiality agreement. This role helps NHS keep client information secure and allows their clinicians to spend more time helping people with their hearing and speech-language needs. If interested, please contact Laurie Mack, lmack@nehearingandspeech.org or (207) 874-1065.
