Volunteers make the difference

We need extra hands! Please consider donating some of your time.

Join Us! We Need You!

While volunteering, you’ll meet other people who share the same passion and are willing to give up their time for the cause. Whether you are part of a team sorting donations for our campus closets, painting a bedroom for a foster child arriving soon or helping to set up for an event, you’ll be making a difference in our community!
