When we work together, we can build a stronger community where people can overcome homelessness.
The Road Home relies on volunteers to help us provide programs and services to individuals and families in our community who are working to overcome homelessness. Volunteers assist with a variety of projects, from weekly programs to dinners, Eagle Scout projects, and kid’s activities.
Please email our Volunteer Coordinators at
and include your contact information and which volunteer opportunities you are interested in.
