Individual Volunteers

When volunteering with Pathways, you will have the opportunity to personally and directly impact our guests.

Below you will find the descriptions of our current volunteer needs. If looking for group, corporate, and church opportunities, click here.

*Individual volunteers must be at least 18 years old, and Pathways does not allow Court Ordered Community Service.

Providing and Serving a Meal

We invite volunteers to sign up to provide dinner for 30-35 shelter residents. Dinner volunteer opportunities are available every day, including holidays.

We serve dinner at 6:00 pm each evening. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 5:30 with the meal. You can choose to stay and serve plates to our guests from 6:00-6:30pm, or you may simply drop off the dinner for our staff to serve.

Due to insurance restrictions, Pathways is unable to allow volunteers to prepare food in our kitchen. We recommend preparing the meal ahead of time in your home or purchasing catering to bring in. You will be able to use our steam table to keep food warm and our plates and serving utensils to serve. 

We publish a new calendar each month for individuals and groups to sign up for meal slots. Click the links below to sign up to serve. You can serve on your own or with up to 5 people.
