Working Together: Everyone Can Help The Homeless


We live in a community with a big heart. We get asked all the time, “how can I help the homeless?”. There are many ways you can help those who are unhoused in our community, whether it’s volunteering, praying, donating physical items, or donating financially to support our work at Fellowship Missions.

How To Volunteer

A strong network of all types of volunteers is vital to our work at Fellowship Missions. No matter who you are, or what your gifts and talents are, you can make a difference!

Volunteer With A Group

One of the most popular ways to volunteer with us is with a group from your school, church, work, or even just a group of friends. 

We love hosting volunteer groups who help with anything from making meatballs (like Lakeland Christian Academy students recently did) to organizing donations (like Indiana American Water and the MRP Solutions teams did this past December) to serving meals and spending time with our residents (like Pleasant View Bible Church, Pathway Church, Harrison Center Church, Valley Springs Fellowship and Community Bible Church).

Volunteer Individually

Whether you can volunteer on an ongoing basis or can help during a specific event, we’re happy to have you! We currently need kitchen volunteers to help prepare, serve, and clean up during meals.

We also have a need for front desk help, so if you love talking to people and can answer the phone, we’d love to have your help!

Providing childcare for shelter residents’ children during Bible studies and program meetings is another need we regularly have.

Donate Needed Items And Funds

Thank you to Zimmer Biomet & AVI Foods for their sweet donation of over 20 cases of ice cream bars!

Taking care of unhoused individuals and families in our community takes a lot of resources and we rely on the financial support of our generous community to be able to serve those who need it most.

Right now our greatest need is for people willing to donate carry-in prepared meals Mondays – Fridays or those who are able to drop off donated meals on Saturdays and Sundays.

You can easily make one-time or recurring donations online using our donation form. If you’d rather donate physical items, we have a Needs List on our website that gets updated frequently, you can even shop using our Amazon Wishlist to make it even easier!

Ready To Make A Difference?

If you have a love for others, a servant’s heart, and are committed to following Jesus, you could be the right fit to volunteer at Fellowship Missions.

If volunteering isn’t the right fit for you, please consider donating to Fellowship Missions so we can continue to restore lives and renew hope in our Kosciusko County community.

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

James 2:14-17, NLT
