Get Involved…  Providence House depends on volunteers to support their families, their events, and an array of projects and services throughout the year. You are invited to help “break the homeless cycle one family at a time” . . . with the gift of time, talent & energy!  All opportunities are Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm unless noted otherwise.

You can provide a meal for families at the Providence House or you can serve the meal they prepare. Seven Days a week. Lunch is served at noon and dinner is served at 4:45 pm weekdays and 4:30 pm on weekends.

Tutor a School Age Child
Assist school-age children with their homework (not necessary to be a teacher) on Monday afternoons, 4 pm - 4:45 pm. Each student is on a different level, and tutors give them the individualized attention they need to succeed.

Organizing Donations and Supplies
Help keep these items organized as they are received.

Cleaning Services
Providence House residents are responsible for keeping the facility clean, but from time to time we need a little extra help with the major projects like cleaning the floors, dusting the blinds, and cleaning the windows.
