There are many ways you can give back to your community, even if you can’t financially Volunteers are an essential part of our program because they assist staff with completing daily operations and provide guidance and support for our clients. Whether you are here because you are required to obtain volunteer hours or you just want to support The Shepherd’s House and our clients, our hope is that you leave here with a positive, ever-lasting impact and learn something about the non-profit world as well as homelessness.
