Can you volunteer?

Would you like to make a difference in our community?

Volunteers are the heart of SPIHN; without them, it cannot exist.  Volunteer involvement and commitment enables more families to be sheltered at a minimal cost, which assists to expand the aspects of the program.  Community support also shows guests that they are genuinely cared for.

Volunteers of all ages, talents, and available time have an opportunity to provide a variety of services:

  • Host Congregation planning and coordinating

  • Cooking and serving meals

  • Playing with the children or helping them with homework

  • Staying overnight at the host church

  • Guest room setup and take down

  • Transportation

  • Provide emergency assistance as needed

  • Day Center support services

  • Serving as a SPIHN Board of Trustee

  • Fund-raising

  • Beyond all of these services, volunteers interact with the guests, treating them with nonjudgmental respect, responding with compassion and providing a source of hope.

Our volunteer opportunities fit varying schedules, talents, and commitment levels. Contact us to if you would like to help.


SPIHN needs host and support congregations for the families in our program.  Host congregations open up their churches and provide overnight lodging, meals (supper, breakfast and a bag lunch) and hospitality.  Hosting rotates among the ten to thirteen congregations in the network, which provide lodging for up to four families (up to fourteen individuals) from 6:00pm to 7:00am the next morning. If you are interested in becoming a host or support congregation, please fill out the form below.
