Empowering Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities since 1959
Come out and feel good knowing that you are making a difference in someone’s life.
Our volunteers are a major benefactor to our operations here at The Ridge.
Do you want to volunteer, but aren’t sure what to do? You can participate in any of these following ways:
BEAUTIFY OUR CAMPUS
VOLUNTEER IN OUR OFFICE
Residents are involved in activities such as arts and crafts, pool days, horseback riding, music and piano lessons, choir groups and exercise classes every week. We always have a need for a helping hand during these activities, so come out and join in on the fun!
If you like to work with brushes, hammers, shovels, or brooms then this is the option for you. We are looking for a handful of people to help make our campus even more beautiful for our residents. You may come down and volunteer alone and work on small projects, or if you know of a group or organization looking to help out then we have larger projects that would be perfect for them.
Maybe your better with filing paperwork, working with numbers or your computer savvy. If that’s the case you can help out by putting those skills to use in our administration building.
Here at The Ridge we are always preparing for an upcoming fundraiser or event. Our volunteers are always so beneficial in helping these events come together, whether it’s by selling tickets, decorating and working at the event or even helping to find sponsors. We always have room for an extra pair of hands. Ask about our different event committees and join one today!
Do you have any fun talents? Do you sing or dance? Can you do a magic trick? If so, come on down and share them with our clients, they would love to watch.
Office Volunteers: Monday – Friday 9:00a.m. – 5:00p.m.
Campus improvements: Monday – Friday 8:00a.m. – 4:00p.m.
Activity Volunteers: Monday – Friday 5:30p.m. – 8:30p.m. or call for specific times for specific activities.

The first step to become a volunteer with us starts with filling out a Volunteer Application. You then can bring the applications into the main office and we can get you started and discuss the next step from there. Applications are also available in the main office during business hours.
If you are interested in volunteering please call (951) 273-7320 ext. 308 or email our Volunteer Coordinator, Samantha Jimenez at email@example.com
Family and Friends of Peppermint Ridge
In 1976, the parent group “Family and Friends” was formed to help The Ridge and each other through the trials and triumphs of our family members.
As strong supporters of The Ridge, Family & Friends take pride in seeing the residents grow and lead fulfilling lives as they enjoy their experiences at Peppermint Ridge.
A Better Life… is what we want for our family members no matter how severe the handicap. At The Ridge, we have found a place that gives our loved ones a home where they can make new friends and live a happy life. In order to provide such a high level of care, the Ridge spends more than what the government provides. This is where we can help!
The fundraising Family and Friends partakes in to raise money is an annual silent auction and an annual turkey raffle. There is also a yearly membership fee of $45.00 per family. The money we raise goes directly to Peppermint Ridge. We have raised money to provide down payments for vehicles, purchased recreational equipment, Christmas gifts for residents, scholarships for residents to attend camp and special event as well as educational and safety items.
Coming together as a group! Along with our two annual fundraisers Family and Friends meets six times a year for a potluck where everyone can relax, talk about any business, hear reports from various people about any concerns, praises, questions, fears or doubts they may have. Sharing many of the same problems helps to lighten the difficulties. Our meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of February, April, June, August, October and December.
As individuals there is only a certain amount that we are able to do, but if we come together as Family and Friends we are stronger.
