“I came here because it was recommended to me and its a wonderful program where you can come down and serve, meet the wonderful residents, workers, and volunteers, and find much more here for yourself than just serving.”
~ Darlene, Dedicated Volunteer
[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.
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).
