We LOVE Volunteers!

Thrift Shop: Volunteers are needed to receive donations, sort goods, tag clothes, arrange donations in the store, cashier, greet shoppers, and HAVE FUN! If you’re interested in volunteering, join us for a one-time orientation meeting on Saturdays at 3 p.m. or Thursdays at 11 a.m. You’ll learn everything you need to know about our mission serving homeless families in the KC Metro as well as learn how and where to serve at our Thrift Stores. If you have a question about volunteering, for the Thrift Stores, For South Platte Thrift Shop, call 816-505-0200. For Platte City Thrift Shop, call 816-858-7717

Housing:  Volunteers are needed to be prayer partners, nurturers, encouragers, mentors, budget counselors and skilled volunteers to help us with work days. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, or would like more information, please contact
