Volunteers keep our thrift store running! Help organize, sort, and display merchandise – make a difference for your community!


Volunteers help with occasional events (such as our holiday gift program), weekly events (food pantry), and many needs in between!


Work with clients to build crucial life skills. Opportunities include Dress for Success, resume classes, financial planning, adult mentoring, and more.


From planning our special events, to special roles, to help with mailings, we can always use extra hands with our Soiree, Annual Report, and more.


Babysitters provide safe care for children while their parents take part in our advocacy, healing, and life skills programs. Join the team!


We provide special training to a select group of volunteers, giving them the skills they need to serve as advocates for adult and child clients.


Do you have a special talent that you’d like to share? Dancers, lawyers, bakers, dentists, musicians, and yoga instructors are among our team!


We offer a variety of sewing classes to our clients. They learn a skill, and make new connections in the community. Will you lead a project?

I felt I could offer something. I listened to life stories and recognized their individual struggles. A wave of compassion and gratitude welled up inside of me. It was time for me to get involved.

What an unbelievable treat to work with this family. The young boy made pajama bottoms. He left the class shouting in joy “awesome, awesome!” Thank you for this opportunity. It was wonderful for me too.
