Volunteer Your Time & Talents Today!

We welcome you, and your group, to come volunteer.

Volunteering

Our volunteer program significantly impacts our ability to serve homeless families in our community. We continually have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. We welcome both regular and one-time volunteers, individuals, and groups, to share your talents and skills. Below you will find a synopsis for each of our programs, each of which is supported by our volunteers and events.

Community Center
Our Community Center provides after school programming for resident youth, which includes homework help, STEM-based activities, therapeutic activities, and mentoring programs in addition to other events like Family Literacy Night.

This program utilizes volunteers Monday – Thursday 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm.

Donation Center
Our Donation Center provides the families we serve with the necessary items to begin again. Here families have access to food, clothing, and other household items, which supports them as they begin their path to self-sufficiency. Through the Donation Center, parents are able to pick out gifts for their children that they might not otherwise be able to afford and the youth can obtain supplies for school and the like.

This program utilizes volunteers Monday – Friday 10:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Resource Center
The Resource Center provides residents access to various materials such as financial literacy courses, parenting classes, resume building, job readiness, and self-care workshops. Residents also have access to computers and the internet for job searching. All of these are important means to help families become empowered and independent.

This program utilizes volunteers Tuesday – Thursday 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Maintenance
Our Maintenance team is responsible for the House of Refuge campus, maintaining both the grounds and the homes of all residents through all necessary repairs including but not limited to plumbing, electrical, landscaping, painting, and other related work.

This program utilizes volunteers Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Groups
Looking for a group opportunity? Search no further. The more the merrier! Group projects include a variety of activities such as painting houses, landscaping, maintenance, food drives, and hosting events for residents like an ice cream social, game night, or parent night out.
