Consistent volunteers make the biggest impact.
If you really want to make a difference in the life of someone in need, consider becoming a “High Impact Volunteer.” These faithful people come back weekly, building relationships and trust with our most vulnerable neighbors.
- Complete the online application.
You’ll provide a username and password for your volunteer account.
- Schedule a tour and orientation.
Every Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesday at 1:00 p.m., we hold tours and orientations for interested volunteers. Call 719-632-1822 to RSVP.
- Schedule an interview.
Part of keeping our guests and campus safe is making sure our volunteers are mature, compassionate people who value the dignity of others. Send us an email with 3 one-hour times that fit your calendar.
- Complete a background check.
Once the first three steps of the process are completed, you will be emailed a link to complete a background check. This test will cost between $15 and $25.
Please note: While we want to get you involved as quickly as possible, it may take up to 30 days to complete this process. If you want to get started right away, we encourage you to schedule a time to serve a meal.
