Volunteering

When we work together, we can build a stronger community where people can overcome homelessness.

The Road Home relies on volunteers to help us provide programs and services to individuals and families in our community who are working to overcome homelessness. Volunteers assist with a variety of projects, from weekly programs to dinners, Eagle Scout projects, and kid’s activities.

Please email our Volunteer Coordinators at

and include your contact information and which volunteer opportunities you are interested in.

Palmer Court is a 201-unit permanent supportive housing complex operated by The Road Home. Residents at Palmer Court have previously experienced long-term homelessness and now work closely with our team of case managers and volunteers to maintain stable housing inour community.
