Volunteers Needed

We are actively recruiting volunteers. If you or someone you know is in a place in their journey where you are ready to serve and help, let’s talk.

Our volunteers serve in many capacities, and training and ongoing support are built into the framework of our volunteer network. After completing an application and background check, volunteers attend a day of training to introduce them to the unique mission of this team and to equip them with the skills needed for success.  Our next volunteer training session is listed below.
