Volunteer Opportunities

Program Team
Share your skills and abilities with our residents!  We would love for you to lead a 6-8 week class or group.  Some of our favorites are things like nutrition, gardening, painting, exercise, cooking, baking, computer skills, tutoring, etc.  

Transportation Team
This is one of our biggest needs.  Help us transport residents to and from important appointments, meetings, jobs, etc.  This is a great opportunity to be able to support and encourage them as you drive!

Property + Grounds Team
With 25 acres and two houses, there is never a shortage of projects!  Help us cut the grass, weed eat, maintain our garden, prune our orchard, mulch the flower beds, etc.

Hospitality Team
This team commits to helping us deep clean our residential space at least once a quarter.  This also could be helping us to prepare/decorate for new seasons and holidays. We would also love to have some help collecting and organizing household donations.  Another opportunity could be to help prepare bedrooms for new intakes!

Administrative Team
There are lots of opportunities to help us administratively.  This could be through sharing social media content, helping prep for a big mailing, being a part of event planning, or writing thank you cards to donors!

Events + Publicity Team
The main need for this team is to help represent Rest Stop Ministries at events and fairs.  We usually have some items to sell - candles, t-shirts, various handmade items, and we always have information about how to get involved!

Social Enterprise Team
Be part of the newest extension of Rest Stop Ministries - our Social Enterprise partnership with Fried Green Tomatoes! You, or a group, can sign up for a time block to assist in product production, packaging, and/or shipping.
