Volunteer with The Inn of The Good Shepherd

Every month, over 450 volunteers find a place in their schedule and a place in their heart to volunteer at The Inn. Whether it’s preparing a meal, helping to package or sort food, guiding clients or helping at a fundraiser – it’s a chance to reach out to the community and touch lives!

Help Wanted

If you have a bit of time available and would like to volunteer, consider these opportunities:

Fundraising & Special Event Volunteers

  • We can always use an extra set of hands when organizing fundraisers and events.  If you are creative and have a flexible schedule, this would be a perfect fit for you!

Food Bank Guides

  • Guides work one morning a week from 9:15am – 12:00pm; assisting clients in making food choices and recording ‘points’ spent as they select food.

Sewing skills needed

  • We have on hand a number of donated winter coats that need minor repairs and zippers replaced.  A few minutes of sewing can help keep someone warm this winter.
