Union Gospel Mission seeks to engage you or your group in a meaningful volunteer experience that meets the needs of homeless and hurting people. Help out by serving food, sharing God’s Word, teaching, working at the thrift store, doing office work, organizing a clothing drive or providing childcare. Opportunities abound for you to make a difference!

VOLUNTEER ON AN ONGOING BASIS
For individuals and leaders of groups who want to serve on a regular basis, the first step to volunteering is to attend an orientation workshop called Volunteer Encounter. It’s designed to educate you about our mission and broaden your horizons about the many different ways you can get involved.
Please note that special events volunteers are not required to attend an orientation.
