Do you want to make a difference in your community? Your country? Your world? Volunteering is a meaningful way to offer direct services to people in need while growing spiritually. Our mission is powered by the gifts and enthusiasm of volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we believe that their time here is a transformative experience for both participants and the volunteers that serve them. Whether you can volunteer for a week or a year, we have opportunities for you to serve, connect, and grow. We'd love to hear from you!

One Mission. Many Ways to Serve.

Paid Service Opportunities

CAP Volunteers and AmeriCorps Members serve between three weeks and one year, connecting participants with home repair, food security, and other vital services.

Summer Camp

Counselors, medical personnel, and cooks are needed to be summertime superheroes to children in need. You can make a lifelong impact on young lives by volunteering.

Skilled and Seasonal

Use your construction skills, love for cooking, or nursing degree to support our alternative spring break, mission group, or summer camp programs.

Service Trips

Make your mission trip right here in America. Your group can play a vital role in our home repair programs in the months of May through November.

Spring Break

Connect your college or high school ministry with our alternative spring break program. Volunteers provide life-changing home repairs while serving alongside students from other groups.


You can support your neighbors right where you live as a Community Volunteer, or be part of relief efforts when disaster strikes as a member of our Disaster Relief response team.
