Dear Potential Volunteer:

Thank you for your interest in Our Daily Rest. Without our volunteers our program would not be possible. Whatever opportunity you decide to volunteer for, just know you are making a huge difference in the lives of individuals and families who are homeless and seeking to better themselves and their situation.

There are a few different volunteer opportunities to choose from:

  • At Dinner—You can bring dinner for our residents or come with a group or with your family, donate the ingredients and cook dinner for our residents. Our maximum capacity is 35 people.

  • In the Office—You can help with office tasks such as answering the phone, filing and other office tasks.

  • Marketing and PR—You can help promote Our Daily Rest in the community by assisting with newspaper articles, newsletters and other types of communication.

  • At an Event—You can help with registration, silent auction, raffle, parking, etc. (tasks will vary depending on the event).

  • In our Life Skills Program—You can teach a class, help with resume writing and interview skills, give a talk on coping with stress, nutrition or thrifty shopping (topics may vary as a need or opportunity arises).



 To be eligible to be a volunteer you must first fill out the volunteer application. When it has been completed you can either mail, fax or scan and email your application to Our Daily Rest. When I receive your application, I will contact you to set up an orientation. After that, I will be in touch with you via email or phone to let you know about available volunteer opportunities.

Again, thank you for your interest in our program. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
