Our volunteer program significantly impacts our ability to serve families experiencing homelessness 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 are the programs supported by our volunteers and events.

Our Volunteer Program is back up and running at full speed ahead!
For those who were part of our volunteer program “pre-COVID,” a BIG Welcome Back to you!! And welcome to those who are interested in learning more about our volunteer programs and joining this incredible team who makes a difference each and every day in our community.
Miracles happen each and every day in the House of Refuge community and we welcome volunteers to help advance our mission! We have volunteer opportunities throughout our neighborhood from working with kids in our Community Center to organizing and processing donations in our Donation Center. If you enjoy filing papers or other desk duties, we have an opportunity for you! As an organization that operates as a Service Enterprise, we fully leverage volunteers to help deliver on our mission. We integrate volunteers throughout our organization, track volunteer hours, and can measure the impact volunteers have on our program. Simply put: when you decide to donate your time and talents at House of Refuge, know that those hours are spent doing meaningful, impactful work – we count on it!


First, send us an email

Contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@houseofrefuge.org for more information about our volunteer program and to learn about the many opportunities we have in our neighborhood for volunteers!


Next, complete all required paperwork

Based on where you’ll be volunteering in our community, we may require different forms. Our volunteer coordinator will inform you of the various forms that may be required, in addition to our own Volunteer Application, from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.


Last, get your schedule!

Once we receive your application and all required forms, our volunteer coordinator will “assign” you to your opportunity and will work with you on a schedule.  In the meantime, view our website to learn more about our programs and sign up for our newsletter. We can’t wait to see you in our community!


We invite you to see our community, learn our story and join our mission to change the trajectory of a family’s life forever
