  • Shelter Community Meals    –     Thursday Nights, 5pm 

    Purchase, prepare, and drop off a simple meal in disposable dishware for the families staying at our shelter on Thursday evenings.  The number of people eating will vary week to week (10-25) extras will be refrigerated for the guest that missed the meal. 

  • Mommy Mentor Program- Anytime 

    Do you have maternal instincts that would you be willing to share? Consider taking on the role of a mentor to someone in need. Supporting someone through the first few months of motherhood could be life changing. This volunteer opportunity would allow you to work one on one with a new mother giving her tips and tricks on how to be the best mom she can be. 

  • Donation Sorting    –     Anytime

    Help us keep our donations neat, organized, and usable for shelter guests and other clients. Duties range from folding sheets, cleaning dishes and moving furniture. Sorting can be done for 2-4 hours on almost any weekday between 9am and 5pm. The work can be a little tedious so bring a friend and help us at our Free Store.

  • Property Related Help    –     Anytime; Some Seasonal
