Volunteering at Shepherd's Table:
Volunteers are at the heart of the mission of Shepherd’s Table. More than 2,500 people shared their time and talent with us last year. Together, we impact the lives of women and men who are homeless or living in poverty every day.
Find the volunteer opportunity that matches your interests and talents, as each act of service is vital to our mission and impacts many lives. When volunteering, remember to serve our guests with a smile and always be respectful. Our minimum age for volunteers is 13, accompanied by an adult. Volunteers age 16 and above can volunteer on their own. For questions, please contact Mindy Hofmann at [email protected] or dial X217.
