Volunteer

We simply cannot open our doors without our volunteers. Thank you for your unselfish commitment to be a part of a team that changes lives. The volunteer experience will change your life and the lives of the people you serve for the better.

HELP FROM HOME: Many donors and volunteers have reached out with kind words, prayers and offers of support. We THANK YOU for that. We’d love to have our volunteers help in ways they are able, while practicing “social-distancing”. See below for some ideas on how you can support the Mission.

  • DONATE: Help our hurting neighbors by making a donation if you are able: https://vegasrescue.org/donate
  • SPREAD THE LOVE: Email written or video messages of hope to share with our staff, residents and shelter guests. (email us at Volunteer@vegasrescue.org)
  • SACK LUNCHES: If you are able, donate items for us to build sack lunches to hand out to those in need.
  • SHOW YOUR SKILLS: Reply to this message with any particular skill-sets you have that you think would be of use to the Mission during these trying times. (Ex. Recorded dance/work out videos to keep our residents and shelter guests active; Share your contacts with us that may be interested in donating funds or goods)

We will continue to send updates with information pertinent for donors and volunteers through VolunteerHub; please forward our emails to fellow volunteers and caring individuals. Thank you for your dedicated service and we look forward to you joining us again in the near future. May God bless you, your loved ones and all those on the front lines during this pandemic. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Heather Williams, Director of Development, at hwilliams@vegasrescue.org or (702) 320-2089.

~ Darlene, Dedicated Volunteer

Volunteer Testimonials

[Volunteer] and it will positively impact your perspective on a lot of things that are important — society, people, and life… Sincere human connections and a sense of community are what the LVRM has offered me, which gives me a sense of belonging and made me feel more whole as a person.

~ Ryan T.

I love participating in what the Lord is doing through rescue missions, changing hearts, minds, and lives by meeting spiritual and practical needs. I really appreciated that before the meal, someone from the line prayed for everyone!

~ Donna G.

I love the interaction with everyone — both volunteers and homeless. Just smiling and thanking them for being there seems to make them smile… I actually look forward to my volunteer days and miss it if I can’t attend. Wonderful, positive, and good Christians!

~ Eric M.

Volunteer FAQ’s

What is the time commitment to volunteer at LVRM?

Depending on the area that you serve will determine the length of time that will be needed; opportunities range from one hour to half or full day; the average shift is 2-hours.

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

Unless otherwise stated during registration for an opportunity, all volunteers must be 14+.

Minors aged 14–15 MUST be with an supervising adult at all times, who also needs to register for the same shift. Minors aged 16-17 may volunteer on their own, if they have a vehicle that remains on campus during service or they are with another volunteer 16+ who has vehicle on campus.

Are there requirements regarding appropriate dress to join the volunteer team?

LVRM is a recovery-based Christian ministry, so we ask that each volunteer have closed-toe shoes for safety and clothing be of modest nature. We ask that pants and appropriate shirts be worn (no tank tops).
