St. John’s Ministries appreciates hundreds of volunteers that give of their time to help people experiencing homelessness in our community
It’s National Volunteer Week! We are so appreciative of the many volunteers who serve in our shelters and daytime resource centers. It is through their dedication, commitment, and passion that we serve our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness so diligently.
We asked volunteers why they serve. Learn more about their passion for people here:
