It does not take much to touch the life of a person in need. Each year, hundreds of 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. Many of our volunteers have been giving of their time and talents since TIS first started serving our neighbors in 2009!  There are several ways to donate your time to our neighbors in need.  We can’t do it without YOU!

Join or Start a Volunteer Team

For each of our shelters (Easton’s Promise and Evelyn’s Place), we aim to have 31 volunteer teams, with each team providing 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 provides supervision for three shifts, Monday through Friday (it is preferable to have 2 volunteers present during each shift):

8:00 – 11:00 am 
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
2:00 – 4:00 pm

What do supervisors do?  Supervisors are extremely important, as they allow our staff to leave the shelters as they need to in order to attend meetings, take guests to appointments, and more.  Supervisors mainly answer the phone, receive donations, and make sure they know what to do in the very rare case of an emergency.

In addition, volunteers provide dinner for each of our houses every night.  These volunteers can be part of a team, or sign up as an alternate to provide meals if there is an open night.
