Volunteers make a significant impact at CityHouse. We know how challenging it can be for the families who find themselves in need of the services we provide, and your words and actions go a long way toward helping them create a better future. We hope that you dedicate your time to CityHouse. We couldn't offer ongoing support without you.
CityHouse offers several types of opportunities for volunteers. On this page, you will find all the information you need to learn about our volunteer opportunities and the resources you will need to get started. Before completing an application, it is important that you understand some important information about becoming a volunteer.
Criminal Background Check: Volunteers who have direct contact with the families, must agree to a background check. Volunteers who are 17 years of age or younger must send a recommendation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Orientation and Training: All volunteers must participate in the training videos located in our portal. It will take around an hour of your time.
Confidentiality: In the course of volunteering, you may be dealing with confidential information about others. You must be willing to agree to keep such information in the strictest confidence.
Health Concerns: If you are not feeling well, please stay home.
Thank you for your patience and we are looking forward to having you serve with us.

"I chose to volunteer at CityHouse because I was drawn to the cause they support, helping single displaced mothers and children. CityHouse isn’t just another non-profit organization. They’re a family of inclusive and loving people that dedicate their time to helping our community members in need. Volunteering at CityHouse has opened my eyes to the fact we all have the ability whether it’s big or small to positively impact someone’s life."
