Experience the joy of service.
Volunteers are vital to our daily work to feed, clothe, house and heal people in need. Just as important, we believe that the experience of volunteering is life-giving and life-changing.
That's why we created a wide range of volunteer opportunities to fit all ages and all lifestyles. In addition, we intentionally foster meaningful service experiences that give both volunteers and program guests the joy of community and connection.
Serve with us this holiday season
We're looking for volunteers to serve meals in our Dining Rooms this holiday season.

Share your time and skills.
Whether it's serving dinner, folding clothes or more specialized opportunities like hosting birthday parties for shelter residents, or leading an arts workshop, there's a place for you to share your time and skills. Areas of service include our dining rooms, shelters, resource center, clinic, unsheltered guest outreach, and more.
