Our mission to end homelessness requires many helping hands. We’re so grateful for our volunteers!

Volunteer needs include: providing meals for the families, helping with fundraising events, repair work and facility maintenance, office/clerical work, and one-on-one work with the children (Kids Club).

Most volunteers are involved in at least two areas of service. Except for those participating in our meals on weekend’s program, volunteers primarily serve in an “on-call” capacity- being contacted as needs arise that fall into their areas of interest. We encourage you to find what fits for you and your skillset.

We love the Home of Hope program! They provide education, life skills, job training and help stabilize families who come in broken. They have a supportive board of directors and a great staff who see the trauma and suffering that the residents go through each day but treat their guests with respect and dignity. By partnering with Home of Hope, we get to help celebrate changed lives!
