Volunteer

 

Volunteering is compassion in action

Volunteering with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission is more than a service opportunity. It's the chance to give hope, healing, and life-saving help. It's about changing lives forever. It's about seeing God's love in action. Whether serving a meal, providing mentorship, sorting donated items, or any other volunteer experience with the Mission, your presence makes a deep impact on what we do and on our homeless neighbors. 

Let's help you get started today

We're excited to connect with you and explore volunteer opportunities together. To get started, fill out our volunteer application. Next, search our volunteer opportunities — to help you put your compassion into action.
