Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help those experiencing homelessness. For details on any of the opportunities listed below, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT: Volunteers must be 18 years or older at the Boccardo Reception Center or 12 years or older (accompanied at all times by an adult volunteer) at our other sites. All volunteers must be scheduled through our volunteer coordinators and supervised by staff. No walk-in opportunities are available.
At your facility: We have several service activities available, including assembling clothing kits, toiletry (hygiene) kits, snack bags, laundry kits, and more. We can handle large or small groups and are flexible about the arrangements. Most activities are appropriate for children as well as adults. Most groups pay for the supplies to help us keep our costs to a minimum. If needed, we can bring the materials and handle set up and clean up.
At our facilities: Groups can provide meal services, host holiday parties and other activities, perform maintenance and beautification projects, and help us process in-kind donations.
HomeFirst also offers challenging internships to BSW/MSW students and MFT Trainees. Interns may work in programs specifically for veterans, transition age youth, mentally ill adults, families with children, and the chronically homeless. Click here for information.
