What is the Role of a Volunteer?
A volunteer is someone who performs the variety of tasks necessary to provide a safe and comfortable temporary home for Hope House guests.
What does the success of Hope House depend on?
The success of Hope House depends on the efforts and enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers. Volunteers express their hospitality by interacting with guests, treating guest families with dignity and respect and showing genuine concern for their well-being. Without volunteers, there would be no Hope House.
Online Volunteer Training
Hope House offers online volunteer trainings for those community members 18 years or older who are interested in serving our homeless families. It is required that all of our volunteers who work directly with our families take part in this informative training.
The online training will discuss various topics such as:
How our program works and why it is so effective.
How you can volunteer and be a part of helping families become stabilized.
Understanding your role as a volunteer.
Sensitivity issues to be aware of when volunteering with our families.

Families are welcome to volunteer together. Children under 18 can volunteer with the adult supervision of a parent or guardian. Call us for details.
"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time;
they just have the heart."
Your time and talents can be a great contribution. Several volunteer opportunities include:
Weekend Daytime Coverage (8-11 am, 11 am – 2 pm, 2-5 pm)
Weekend shifts are available for both Saturdays and Sundays during the day throughout the year. There are three different daytime shifts we offer on the weekends.
Evening Hosting at Hope House (5-8 pm)
Evening hosts socialize with guests, welcome newcomers, and assist parents with children’s needs. Evening hosts may conduct children’s activities, help with homework, or assist a guest with a particular need.
Performing Miscellaneous Duties Around the House
Some miscellaneous duties are cleaning, washing laundry, handy work or organizing the donations that we receive, and special projects.
