Volunteer groups work with our Volunteer Manager to develop experiences designed to meet a group's goals and to provide meaningful support to the families you serve here.

Your group leader will meet with our Volunteer Manager, either in person or by phone, to discuss the size of the group, the time available, and the goals of your volunteer experience. Most groups work to prepare donations for our Free store, to provide breakfast or lunch time refreshments to waiting families, or help transport furniture to a formerly homeless individual's new housing.  Each of these tasks directly benefit families and individuals in need.

Groups looking for a larger or longer-term project may host clothing drives, furniture drives or other events to benefit Crisis Assistance Ministry. 

Group Volunteer Projects

Breakfast or Lunch Ministry teams provide food and beverages for those who wait in the line or lobby at Crisis Assistance Ministry. 

Free Store Warehouse teams help inspect, sort and stock donated items in the Free Store, our community’s only large-scale resource for donated clothing and household items that are given to families in need at no charge.

Furniture Build teams of up to 25 volunteers purchase and assemble 10-15 dressers for families in need at our Furniture Bank.

Clothing, Furniture and Housewares Drives conducted by volunteer groups help secure donations of furniture, appliances, and other household items to be distributed through the Free Store and Furniture Bank.

Poverty Simulation Kit Assembly teams of 5 to 15 volunteers reassemble materials used for Poverty Simulations.

Relocation Assistance assists formerly homeless individuals and families transitioning to stable housing.  Groups of 8-10 provide a truck and the muscle to transport furniture from our Furniture Bank to the new home.
