It does not take much to touch the life of a person in need. Each year, 450+ generous neighbors come together to provide supervision, meals, and fellowship for our guests, as well as other volunteer opportunities. Join "Team TIS" today, and help change the lives of families and individuals right here in our community.

Give Your Time

We have been blessed with hundreds of volunteers with huge hearts. There are many ways to donate your time to our neighbors in need.  We can’t do it without YOU!

Join a Volunteer Team

***Please Note: Due to COVID, for the safety of our volunteers, staff, and guests, we have temporarily suspended our on-site volunteer program. Our incredible volunteers are still providing dinner each night-feel free to reach out if you would like to help.

We will keep you posted when we are able to welcome our volunteers back. In the meantime, if there is anything we can do to help you during this challenging time, don't hesitate to reach out. We can't wait to see everyone!!***

We have 31 volunteer teams. Each provides supervision and dinner one day per month. You can sign up for a team, or add your name to our list of alternates in case we have a volunteer unable to make their shift.

Each volunteer team covers three shifts:

AM Shift – One or two volunteers provide supervision from 7-10 am 
Dinner – A volunteer or volunteers provides dinner for our guests at 5:30 pm. Volunteers are encouraged to join our guests for the meal.
PM Shift – One or two volunteers provide supervision from 7-11 pm. Our paid overnight supervisor will arrive to take over at 11 pm.

In addition, we also have a dedicated team of daytime supervisors who provide supervision Monday through Friday from 10-1 or 1-4. Let us know if you would be interested in being added to the daytime supervision list.
