VOLUNTEER

Our mission to end homelessness requires many helping hands

Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter utilizes volunteers in the areas of providing meals for the children, office/clerical work, supplying items from our wish list, fundraising events, one-on-one work with the children as well as repair work and maintenance of the facility. Some volunteers are involved in one area of volunteer service; many are involved in two or more areas.

As we are contacted by those interested in becoming volunteers, they are sent a volunteer application, and shelter information. Once the application is returned the information is kept on file and used accordingly. 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.

Please be advised that volunteers at Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter are required to submit a background check before acceptance into our volunteer program. The minimum age of a volunteer is 18 years old.

The first step to volunteering here at Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter is to fill out the  Volunteer Application.
