You can do a world of good

It's not about how much time you put in, but the impact you can make with your skills and passions. Explore our volunteer opportunities to find the best fit for you.

All Volunteer Opportunities

Donor (In-Kind and Monetary)

Donations are needed frequently. Gift cards allow families to buy weather-appropriate clothing, highchairs, cribs, and other necessities. Some donations must be new, while others can be used. Couches, vehicles, and bicycles are a common request and can be gently used. Cribs or mattresses must be new. Contact us to make a monetary donation to directly support an individual or family or donate items. Check out our Amazon Wish List of items we must provide every refugee in our care. https://a.co/dE6UIo6

Volunteer
Co-Sponsor a Refugee Family

Form a small group of friends, co-workers, neighbors, or church members to be matched with a refugee family arriving soon. Co-Sponsorship is a longer term commitment (least six months) as your group will assist staff to meet refugees' needs upon arrival and help them to thrive in your new community. Training is provided by our staff so you are all prepared to offer support services.
