“My offering is simply a continuation of the guiding theme for St. John, that care and respect will support each person to meet their day with a bit more resiliency. It is amazing to be in this kind of space.”
“Being a volunteer at St. John Center has been a rewarding experience for me. Reflecting positive images for our guests in a meaningful way makes it all worthwhile.”
“God told me to give back. A friend recommended St. John Center. I love people and I want to learn to forgive. I know we could be in their shoes pretty quick. It makes me feel good to help other people and not focus on my own problems.”
Volunteers are the Heart of St. John Center
St. John Center volunteers play a central role in how we serve homeless men. Every day, volunteers welcome our guests, retrieve their mail, answer phones and serve coffee. St. John Center volunteers are often the first people our guests meet.
The Day Shelter and Social Services Center is open 7 days a week, from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm (2:00 pm Wednesdays) and volunteers typically serve in 2 hour shifts, which makes volunteering at St. John Center very accessible and flexible. People who are interested in volunteering attend our Volunteer Orientation, which is offered the second Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. For more information, contact Raymond Schafer at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 502-398-3495, or use the contact form below.
