Overview

Volunteering at the Mission is more than a service opportunity. It's the chance to give hope, healing, and help save lives.

Volunteer opportunities are virtually limitless, including things like serving meals; sorting donations; handing out blankets, sandwiches, and hope while doing Search & Rescue; leading a Bible study; mentoring; providing and serving food for our Bring a Meal (BAM) program; and more! Group opportunities are also available on our group page

First Time Volunteers

Take a few moments to review the Mission’s Volunteer Handbook. It helps to know our history, mission, and some basic dos and don’ts—like what kind of shoes are okay in the kitchen—to help have a fun and rewarding experience.

Next, create a username and login for our volunteer site.

Once approved (1-2 days), then you can jump right in and lend a hand! With your volunteer username and password, return to our volunteer site where you’ll have access to see and sign up to serve throughout the Mission.
