You can make a difference.

There are always opportunities to help out at the Inn, and it doesn’t have to be a time consuming commitment. For example, front desk shifts start at two hours per week. We need immediate volunteer help in the following areas:

  • Meal Preparers
    • Thousands of meals without a commercial kitchen. How is such a thing possible?

      Because of folks just like you. Meals are prepared off site by individuals, families & friends, businesses,
faith-based and community groups. Those same people then come in and serve the meal. There are many ways to accomplish this vital task and we can help you tailor your participation. You can even shop in our pantry for the ingredients! We also have large restaurant-style pans that you can borrow to use in the preparation and transportation of your meal. And maybe the best news of all… you don’t have to clean up!

      We also have BBQ’s on site if you would like to utilize those in your food preparation.

      Don’t have the time or desire to cook? Don’t have a kitchen? You can still be part of this vital program by donating food items that other volunteers will use when preparing meals!  Just give us a call to find out what ingredients we need most.

      To find out more about how you can help with our meal program, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 541.322.8768 ext. 11 or
