The volunteer program at Greenwood Pathway House exists to help you make a real difference in your community. Our volunteers are an integral part of our ministry as they share their God-given talents to help our clients. Their compassion radiates through our campus as they provide a nourishing meal, an act of kindness, sometimes just a warm smile and a handshake.

Volunteer Requirements

As a volunteer, you join us in ending homelessness, one friend at a time. It is important that all of our volunteers treat our clients in a manner that reflects Biblical character, that shows respect for the value and dignity of all people, that recognizes a need for the protection and well-being of everyone, and that is always God-honoring.

Volunteers that work on our campus must:

  • Be at least 18 years old to volunteer individually
  • Be at least 12 years old to volunteer with an adult chaperone

Note: Individual volunteers that work with our children are required to complete an annual background check.
