Our indispensable volunteers

Learn how you or your group can ignite the spark for youth by volunteering at The Place.

The Place has two ways you can volunteer


We will work with you and your group to do major projects that include painting, landscaping, deep cleaning in our dorms, construction, and more.  Group volunteer opportunities do not require background checks and are great for group service projects.

To find out opportunities for your group to volunteer, please contact us.


You want to make a difference by becoming a volunteer.  You may have a desire to interact with the young people we serve, from cooking to receptionist to art or exercise.  If you would like to volunteer this way, please know there is a process that can take a few weeks.

Please let us know and we will send you the date for our next Orientation.

Currently, we are in-between Volunteer Managers.  Please email us if you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities and our Volunteer Manager will contact you.  Thank you for your patience.

Volunteer Spotlight

Deb Yagmin has served as a volunteer to The Place since 2011.

Deb is a terrific ambassador for our mission and is always ready to represent The Place. Here she is pictured with former volunteer manager Juniper McGinn and Deb Mahan of the Empty Stocking Fund at an event last winter. In addition to her community service, Deb cooks at the shelter several times a year with members of Faith Presbyterian Church and works alongside the development team.

Deb has seen many changes at The Place in the last eight years, but one constant remains. “The caring and supportive dedication of all the staff members is unparalleled,” she said. “When former clients seek out the staff to let them know how well they have adjusted to their new situation, you know the volunteer hours you have given in support of this awesome organization, is really impactful.”

From all of us at The Place, thank you for your partnership Deb!
