Thank you for your interest! There are two steps to becoming a Haven for Hope volunteer.

Thank you for choosing Haven for Hope and for your thoughtful spirit of giving! We are grateful for the generosity we have received this holiday season and to the thousands of volunteers who help support our program. Due to the amazing response we’ve received from the community this year we are not able to process new applications until the New Year.
