Periodic Volunteer Opportunities

Special Event Volunteers
Throughout the year, Fellowship Missions participates in several events in the community in an effort to raise funds and awareness for homelessness in our community. Volunteers who help at special events fill a variety of roles and help with many different tasks as needed for the event.

From time to time, residents need transportation assistance. Volunteers who help with this will drive residents to specific appointments and meetings as needed.

Office Help
Periodically, we need help with administrative tasks such as folding, stuffing. sorting and preparing mailings, filing, sorting & organizing donations, etc.

On a quarterly basis, volunteers may be asked to help deep clean the children’s playroom, the gathering room, and/or the kitchen. Twice a year, we also need assistance with deep cleaning the dorms and living areas.

Landscaping & Maintenance
We require the assistance of volunteers to help with landscaping and/or maintenance projects. This could include painting, light construction, etc.


Internship Opportunities

We welcome the opportunity to partner with students who need to fulfill internship requirements for high school or college programs. We strive to enhance your learning experience by providing exposure to social services, development, and/or programs.

Rather than fulfill a specific role, we prefer to work with students to customize their internship by providing practical experience working in a variety of areas within the shelter. Based on your goals, as well as our needs, this may include one or more of the previously mentioned volunteer opportunities, as well as supporting fundraising, marketing, communications, operations, programs, etc.
