Our indispensable volunteers

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

Two ways you can volunteer

The COVID-19 virus has impacted volunteer opportunities.  Our team is exercising all safety precautions in, and around, our shelter. We will be more than happy walk you through the process of becoming a 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.
