Becoming Part of the Volunteer Team

Our volunteers are our most precious asset at Interfaith Emergency Services. The work we do in our community would not be possible without the over 250 volunteers it takes to keep us running. We believe in honoring our volunteer by being sensitive to their time and needs, so that they feel worthwhile and effective. The staff works alongside the volunteers to support them, providing the opportunity to work as a team.
