Volunteer


Volunteers are needed to make Hope’s Corner happen! We have volunteer opportunities every week on Thursday morning, Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. You can sign up for just one day or several. Please sign up if you are planning to come so we don't end up with too many volunteers and not enough for them to do.  Contact us to inquire about opportunities for groups!  Read the volunteer job descriptions below, and then click on the Volunteer Now button to sign up.
