Volunteer Opportunities 
The greatest need for volunteers is for people to volunteer their time to stay overnight in our shelter. We schedule two volunteers to stay in the churches overnight with the guests. If we do not have two volunteers scheduled, then we cannot open the shelter for that night. Overnight volunteers do sleep too! Volunteers need to attend a one-time training. Training dates are listed above.
Another great opportunity to volunteer is to be a breakfast cook. Breakfast is started around 6:15am and finished by 8:15am.
Please call the Resource Center at 717-334-4195 to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
