Volunteer

Forty years ago, a group of compassionate community members wanted to make a difference. Together, they founded Union Station Homeless Services. Today, volunteers continue to be essential to our life-saving work.

Whether you volunteer in our kitchens to prepare meals for our clients; at our facilities to provide child care; or in our offices to help with administrative work, you will be a valuable member of our family when you volunteer at Union Station Homeless Services.

Volunteer opportunities are varied, and we do our best to match volunteers with a position that suits their interests and skills.
