"Dating back to 1915, volunteers have played a critical role in our ministry to those who are homeless. Our programs and services are enriched by the hands and hearts of caring Christians who live out their call to serve the less fortunate. Hope Ministries is committed to an efficient and effective community involvement program in the years ahead as we seek to connect God's people with God's work."
~Leon Negen, President/CEO

We love volunteers! Each year, more than 2,000 people volunteers with Hope Ministries . . . serving meals, working in our ENCORE Thrift Stores, leading chapel, and more. Some serve on a one-time basis and others serve regularly. We offer both individual and group tracks for volunteers:

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

For individuals, we offer a high-impact volunteer program called the M25 Volunteer Network. M25 Volunteers complete an orientation and serve in a number of capacities such as class teachers, chapel leaders, meal servers and more. Learn more here.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

We offer a variety of group opportunities for families, churches, businesses, civic service clubs and other organizations--including both onsite and offsite options. Click here to learn more about how your group can volunteer at Hope Ministries.
