Volunteers are a vital part of providing all types of services in our Broward and Miami-Dade Centers. Thousands of people from the community bring their time and talents to enrich the lives of the homeless men, women, and children that are being cared for throughout the year.
Not only are the homeless and needy touched by the compassion of our volunteers, but the volunteers' lives are also touched. Serving others is one of life's greatest priviliges. Reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost in a personal way that says, "I care about you" brings encouragement to our residents and staff. Whether its serving a meal, tutoring a student, or working with the youth - volunteers make a difference in people's live.
Your time and talents will help so many men, women, and children in need. Submit the completed form and you will be quickly contacted.
