Volunteers are at the core of Home & Hope

Home & Hope engages over 1,400 volunteers from 34 partner congregations and other community organizations and businesses to provide support for our families every day of the year.

It is impossible for families to make long-term change without community and supportive resources. Volunteers not only provide the tangibles of food and shelter, they bring hope and stability to families facing devastating circumstances.

Why volunteer?

Please take a few minutes to look at a this video from the originators of Home & Hope’s shelter model, the Interfaith Hospitality Network program of Family Promise. You’ll learn about the program and why volunteering is so important and meaningful.
