Volunteering at City Mission

Our Volunteer Philosophy:  Volunteers founded City Mission. Volunteers have always been partners in the work of the mission.  Volunteers are our most valuable resource and are an integral part of our future.  We believe the talents, gifts, experiences, and time each volunteer brings to City Mission are gifts from God.  We are committed to providing volunteers the opportunity to exercise their gifts in the service of “the least of these” for the Lord.  Volunteers will assist us in continuing to offer quality programs that will provide residents the opportunity to take the next productive step in their journey to independence.  Please read our Volunteer Brochure and feel free to explore our open volunteer opportunities.
