Volunteer at Friendship Place

Friendship Place volunteers provide invaluable support in the lives of men, women and families experiencing homelessness in our community. Each year, more than 450 volunteers donate over 20,000 hours of service to our community.

We welcome volunteers of all ages, including students needing service hours.

Listed below are some of the many ways you can give your time and get involved as a volunteer, either individually or as part of a group.  We also welcome your own, unique ideas!
