Volunteering is a great way to help end
homelessness in our community

We work with individuals; groups from faith-based, corporate, neighborhood, or community organizations; and families or groups of friends.

IMPORTANT: Volunteers must be 18 years or older at the Boccardo Reception Center or 13 years or older at our other sites.  All volunteers must be scheduled through our volunteer portal and supervised by staff. No walk-in opportunities are available!

Necessary steps to volunteer with HomeFirst

  • If you plan to volunteer for more than 8 hours total, you must submit proof of negative TB test.

  • If you plan on bringing in food, you must provide proof of a food handler safety permit.
