Volunteer as a Group

Info for groups of volunteers.

Families, church groups, businesses, and other local groups can make a big difference – and have fun – by volunteering as a group. Follow these simple steps to get started.

  1. Complete the online application. The leader begins by selecting “I am the group leader”. From there a member of the volunteer department will reach out by phone to schedule your group date and set up the customized group signup link for the leader to share.
  2. Schedule group. Each member of the group will individually sign up through the customized link. Please select “I want to volunteer as part of a Group” on the affiliations page. Each person will be able to see the event and sign up from there.

Group Opportunities:

- Serve a Meal Ages 16 & older, groups of 4-8, available Tues & Thurs, groups 4-20 available Saturdays. Dinner volunteers serve 2:00 pm -5:00 p.m., providing warm meals and a friendly smile.

- SharePoint Ages 16+ or 12+ with accompanying adult, groups of 4 or less, available every weekday, groups 4-8 available Saturdays. Volunteers serve 1:30pm -4:30pm, welcoming and assisting guests in the center, as well as warehouse support.

NOTE: Group leaders are also strongly encouraged to attend an upcoming Volunteer Tour and Orientation or Springs Rescue Mission Tour. View available tours and orientations. If your group is interested in hosting a drive on our behalf, please email us and we will gladly provide you with a list of current needs. We’re grateful for your heart to serve our valuable neighbors at Springs Rescue Mission. If you have any questions or need more information, please email us.

**Important Information about Group Projects**

- As the Springs Rescue Mission states, “Because of our love and obedience to God, our mission is to mobilize the community to provide relief, rehabilitation and empowerment services.” Therefore, our limited group opportunities are reserved for groups within the Greater Colorado Springs area. If your group is not from the Greater Colorado Springs area, we encourage you to seek opportunities in your area.

- Most of our projects are suitable for up to 10 people, but occasionally we are able to work with larger groups on a case-by-case basis.

- Lodging and meals: we do not provide lodging for volunteer groups, but we do welcome all volunteers to join us for a meal in the Samaritan’s Kitchen. If your group plans to join us for a meal during your time of service with us, please identify the number of individuals dining with us at the time you submit your group application, via e-mail to Volunteer@SpringsRescueMission.org.

- Group scheduling: any special group volunteer projects require time to plan with the appropriate departments. Please submit requests 30 to 60 days prior to the date of service.

All volunteers are asked to check in when they arrive on campus. The volunteer and visitor entrance is located in our main administration building at 5 W. Las Vegas Street and outlined in our Visitor Map.

How old do you have to be to volunteer?

SRM has established a minimum age requirement of 18 years for all volunteers. This policy is in line with our commitment to providing a safe and secure environment for all individuals we serve, as well as for our volunteers.

We understand that many young people are eager to make a difference, and we encourage them to get involved in other ways. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to your support as we work together to help those in need in our community.

Where do SRM Volunteers park?

Volunteers are asked to park in our visitor parking lot located at 59 W. Las Vegas Street. There is no permit required to park in this lot. You can find parking our instructions and map here: Parking Map.

Can I take a tour of the campus?

Yes! We would love to give you a tour of our Campus of Hope. All volunteer orientations include a tour of our campus as you begin to get familiar with SRM.

We also host tours weekly for individuals and groups who are not in Volunteer Orientation.
