Volunteer Your Time

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Remember to have everyone in your group sign up. *Please note that volunteer opportunities are a little different this year.

Due to COVID-19, we do not have any on site volunteer opportunities at this time. Click to complete the online form if you are interested in helping with fundraising or future event planning. No meals are necessary until Fall 2021. Consider hosting an online fundraiser for much needed operating costs. Click here to Become a Fundraiser and click the green button.

Each year, over 200 volunteers assist us as we provide shelter to women experiencing homelessness in our community. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any questions. We look forward to having you join us in the shelter again in the future.

We will need your help in volunteering in these areas beginning November 1, 2021:

  • Dinner Preparer 
  • Lunch Preparer
