Dedicate your talents and passions to help us care for
families, improve lives, and lead change.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Community of Hope!
While the majority of our in-person volunteer opportunities are currently on pause due to the COVID-19 virus, we look forward to having volunteers ready to support our children and families once conditions are safe to resume programming.
We will be hosting Volunteer Orientations via conference call for the foreseeable future. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule yours!
One-time or remote opportunities are posted on our calendar.
You can also visit our website for updates on our programming and services related to COVID-19.
Our volunteer program offers a number of individual and group volunteer activities – matching a wide range of interests, skills, and commitment levels.
The following opportunities are great for one-time and reoccurring volunteers or for groups of up to six people.
Fam-Club and Dinner at The Triumph
Support families overcoming homelessness and give back to your local community! Help lead fun activities and serve dinner to the residents at The Triumph, short-term housing site in Ward 8, Washington, DC.
The following opportunities require a longer-term commitment from volunteers. If you are interested in any of these, please create a Volunteer Account, and sign up for an orientation.
The Commons Receptionist
Help make The Commons a warm and welcoming community center in Ward 8.
Play Night at Hope Apartments

Kids Club at Girard Street Apartments
Provide children with the opportunity to participate in fun activities that support the development of strong social skills and creativity. Kids Club is a safe and enjoyable space where children get to be creative, bond with caring adults, and be themselves!
Diaper Donation Pick-Up
Help our parents be well-prepared to care for their babies by picking up diaper donations!

Community of Hope is changing operations to our Volunteer Doula Program. We will no longer use doulas in a volunteer capacity. Instead, we will find new ways to connect patients to doulas in the community. We will look to partner with doula collectives and individuals in the area who can provide pro-bono doula services for Community of Hope parents.
Community of Hope's 451 volunteers devoted their time to serve our families in 2018.
Corporate partners, community groups and individuals can volunteer to help throw monthly birthday parties for kids at our Girard Street Apartments and Hope Apartments.
