VOLUNTEERING at Bethany House is rewarding and fun and most importantly, makes a difference in the lives of homeless families. We have a variety of ways that you can get involved in our mission. If you don’t see something that matches what you’re looking for or have an idea for something new? We’re always looking for new ways to match volunteer efforts with our needs.
Provide dinner at our Fairmount Shelter for up to 40 guests, Mondays through Thursdays. Dinner is served at 6:00 p.m. Volunteers can cook dinner at home and heat it upon arrival or cook at the shelter in our fully equipped kitchen. You are also welcome to help with child care after dinner while our moms are attending life skills classes (7:00-8:30pm) and hang out with the kids to have some fun and provide some much needed TLC!
Provide breakfast at our Fairmount Shelter for up to 40 guests on Saturdays or Sundays. Breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m. Volunteers can cook the food at home and heat it upon arrival or cook and serve at the shelter.
Child care at the Fairmount Emergency Shelter during the evenings (Monday through Thursday) from 7:00-8:30p.m. Play games, read books, do a variety of arts & crafts or supervise outdoor play. This is an excellent way for high school students to earn service hours for school.
Kitchen cleaning – We need volunteers to “super” clean both of our kitchens at the Fairmount Shelter.
Fall and spring cleaning: Clean the woodwork, windowsills, windows, window screens, hallways and playrooms at the Fairmount Shelter.
Third Party Fundraisers: Gather a group to host small fundraisers such as a bake sale, car wash, walk/run, dances, etc. to raise funds for rental assistance, transportation costs, enrichment programs and our children’s programs. Arrange a donation drive for items from our “wish list.”
Santa’s Shop: Volunteer, donate or collect gifts for our families. Wrapping paper, bows and name tags are also needed. All shelter guests served in the last year are invited to “shop” for their families for the Holidays.
Assist with Special Events: We have three events each year – our Golf Classic, Wine & Beer Tasting and Mardi Gras. Volunteers are needed to join committees and gather auction items. We also need volunteers the day of the event to set up, work the event and clean up.
Serve on various committees: We could use your professional experience and expertise for the following committees – Development, Social Services, IT, Investment, HR, Marketing,
