Volunteer

VOLUNTEERS MAKE OUR WORK POSSIBLE!
We rely on volunteers to help serve over 700 homeless and financially burdened men, women and children every day of the year!
To submit a volunteer application, please select the INDIVIDUAL or GROUP VOLUNTEER APPLICATION TAB.

All Groups MUST schedule volunteer opportunities prior to service.
Once we review your application, you will receive an email or phone call from our volunteer coordinator.

NEED TO COMPLETE COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS?
If you need your hours tracked and verified with a letter of proof, you must enroll into a different program called: the
Community (CS) Service Program.  Our (CS) Program is designed for people who need to complete service hours for school, church, court and other organizations. Participants must enroll in our Administration Office prior to serving their hours.
