Help your neighbors – low-income, families, and individuals in DC experiencing homelessness – receive the housing and healthcare they desperately need. Give today!
Our volunteer program offers a number of individual and group volunteer activities – matching a wide range of interests and skills.
We have opportunities ranging from childcare to throwing birthday parties! Our community events happen every few months and we’re always looking for volunteers to help with activities like registration, photography, or arts and crafts. Or, are you, or do you know, a teen looking for community service hours? We need teens for a number of tasks, like reading to youth at our housing sites or helping organize donations.
Check out all the job opportunities and learn how to dedicate your talents and passions to help us care for families, improve lives and lead change.
Together we serve families who are going through major transitions. Our clients are on the verge of homelessness, have just exited shelter, or simply need extra help to care for their young families. Support them by providing kitchenware, linens, infant clothing, or cleaning supplies.
For more information about the needs of our families, visit our In-kind Donations page.
Our mentoring program matches youth in our housing programs between the ages of 8 to 18 with a compassionate, committed, and responsible adult mentor for a minimum of one year. If you’re interested in providing opportunities for education and personal growth, while making a difference in the lives of local youth, apply to be a mentor.
