… “Helping Hands Building Homes For The Unsheltered” …

We would love to have you volunteer to work with us!

There are many opportunities to help no matter what your skill level is.

We will find a place for you to help out doing what you love to do !     

Homelessness can affect anyone at any time. Hope Village exists to help individuals and families in need get back on their feet. But, to continue serving our Hope Village guests, we need your help! Our Community Center is in need of volunteers to help staff it, so our tiny house guests can use the facility for accessing the kitchen to cook meals, restrooms and showers and hanging out in the lounge areas. Without volunteers to staff the Community Center, our guests cannot access the facility for these basic needs. That’s where you can help!

Volunteer staffing shifts are in two hour increments, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. If you have a group at your church, like a men’s/women’s group, youth ministry, book club or quilting group, we welcome your assistance. This is a wonderful opportunity to get outside of your church and help those in our community.
