Leadership Team

Objectives: The Leadership Team is in charge of all the planning details. It is made up of the leaders from each team. They work hard months in advanced to coordinate people, locations, and various details that are required to put on a Compassion Clinic. Only members of the Leadership Committee can register for the Leadership Team. 


General Volunteers

Objective: As a General Volunteer, you are tasked with helping where ever help is needed. Whether it is working in the clothing closet helping guests pick out clothing or just chatting with a guest in order to make a personal connection, General Volunteers can be pulled in any direction where assistance may be needed throughout the day. If you are a friendly, outgoing, and flexible individual, this is the perfect job for you!


Flow Team

Objective: The objective of the Flow Team is to coordinate the movement of guests receiving Dental services. It is their job to escort the guest and their chart to the various appropriate locations throughout the day, ultimately making sure that they make it to their appointment on time. They are the only individuals in the clinic allowed to handle guest charts, other than members of the Dental Team. The Flow Team members are selected by the team leader. If you have served on this team in previous clinics, feel free to register now.


Dental Team

Objective: The Dental Team is comprised of Dental professionals. Their job is to help the guests seeking Dental services in any way possible, while also making them feel welcome and comfortable. They provide cleanings, fillings, extractions, and possibly other services at the off-site locations. The Dental Team is selected and invited by the Dential Leader. If you are a Dental Professional and would like to volunteer, please contact the Dental Team Leader prior to registration.


Medical Team

Objective: The Medical Team is comprised of medical professionals. Their job is to help the guests seeking Medical services in any way possible, while also making them feel welcome and comfortable. The Medical Team is selected and invited by the Medical Team Leader. If you are a Medical Professional and you would like to volunteer, please contact the Medical Team Leader prior to registration.


Hospitality Team

Objectives: The Hospitality Team is responsible for making sure the guests feel welcome, special, and loved. They hand out refreshments to guests and volunteers, serve lunch, and keep the volunteer break rooms stocked with refreshments throughout the day. 


Kid Zone Team

Objective: The Kid Zone is charged with taking care of and entertaining the kids of volunteers and the guests. The gym is transformed to a fun zone with an inflatable slide, face painting, cupcake walk, and various entertainment stations. The volunteers in this area will make sure the kids are safe and cared for while their parents are receiving services or working in the clinic. Please note that to work on this team you will undergo a background check.


Follow-Up Team

Objective: The Follow-Up Team is responsible for meeting with all the guests who received a Medical or Dental service. They ask them several questions about the clinic and their experience, as well as pray with them or just chat in hopes of making a long term connection with the guest.


Prayer Team

Objective: The Prayer Team is tasked with praying for and with guests on the day of the clinic. Also they are asked to pray for and with the volunteers for the clinic. They are asked to pray that the day be blessed by Christ and that the guests and volunteers will see God's love in all that we do.


Social Services Team

Objective: The Social Services Team is comprised of local agencies that guests can connect with to get assistant to meet their needs. The members of this team are selected and invited by the Social Services Team Leader. To register, you must have been spoken to and cleared by the team leader, Nancy Martinez. To contact, please email her at:


Set-Up/Take-Down Team

Objective: The Set-up and Take-down team is in charge of transporting and setting up all necessary tables, chairs, and equipment the day before the clinic and then taking it down immediately following the clinic. If you are strong, active, and able to follow specific instructions, then this is the perfect job for you!


Interpreters Team

Objective: The Interpreters Team is for individuals who fluently speak more than one language. Many of the guests do not speak or write English, so we often need an interpreter who can translate between the volunteer and the guest. We need people who speak Spanish and Russian mainly, but other languages are welcome as well. 


Parking and Security Team

Objective: The Parking and Security Team is tasked with the safety and security of all guests and volunteers. They make sure that parking free zones remain car free and ensure that people are safe while crossing the streets or parking lots. 

The success of Compassion Ridgefield depends on the generous contributions from local churches and our community partners and sponsors. Without your help, this event wouldn't be possible. Thank you!
