Throughout the year, we use over 3,000 volunteers to assist with serving meals, cleaning, assisting in a dorm or helping at a front desk, and much more. Please see the volunteer positions list for a complete description of our existing volunteer positions.

We invite you to volunteer at our shelters, housing programs, food pantries, community stores, and administrative office or with one of our conferences.

PLEASE NOTE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 14: For the safety of all, our policy is that no child under age 14 is allowed to volunteer on site at any of our locations (shelter, food pantry, store, etc.). Children 14 years of age and older may volunteer at any location when accompanied by a parent or guardian who is over 18 years old.*
