Micah prides itself in maximizing the hands, hearts and feet of local servants.
Our volunteers embody the call to Do Justice, Love Kindness, and Walk Humbly with God.
Volunteers are the heart of Micah.
A CULTURE OF DISCIPLESHIP
The relationships formed while doing good work with our neighbors and staff could not be replicated anywhere else, and we are grateful for our friends who have come alongside us to help neighbors find a home here.
Whether you want to get your hands dirty working on a property beautification project, be a friend to a neighbor overcoming homelessness, or help people connect to community resources, there’s a little something for everyone to jump in and get involved!
GET STARTED AS A VOLUNTEER
What are your current volunteer opportunities?
Micah currently has volunteer openings in each of our ministries. Help provide for basic needs at our Hospitality Center, prepare a home-cooked meal for our Respite House, mentor a newly-housed neighbor in our Housing Ministry, join in worship with our homeless neighbors during Street Church, and much more.
We discuss all of the volunteer opportunities in detail at volunteer orientation; however, if you’re on the fence, email our Community Engagement Navigator at [email protected].
How do I get started volunteering?
In order to start volunteering with Micah, please complete one of the applications above, either as an individual, group or community service volunteer. When you submit your application, you will be prompted to RSVP for a volunteer orientation. (Exception: community service volunteers are not required to attend orientation). Once you complete orientation, you will be able to use our online volunteer portal to sign up for your first and all subsequent volunteer shifts.
What are the volunteer requirements?
Each program that invites volunteers may have slightly different requirements. Generally speaking, all of our volunteers who work directly in our ministries must be at least 16 years old.
The biggest requirements for volunteering are willingness to meet our neighbors where they are with patience, love, and kindness. The barriers that our homeless neighbors face are difficult and frustrating to navigate. So our volunteers who come alongside our neighbors to help them navigate those challenges as friends make all the difference in the world.

Do you have any volunteer opportunities for minors?
If you are interested in volunteer opportunities for families with children, we have several areas where your family can get involved, either volunteering with our church partners or doing off-site tasks like making sandwiches for our bagged lunches or collecting items. To apply as a family with minor children, please click “volunteer as a group” above to get started!
What is the online volunteer portal?
Micah utilizes a software called Volunteer Impact to schedule most of our volunteer shifts. All volunteers use this portal to sign up for or cancel shifts and keep track of the hours they give. Volunteer Impact makes getting involved easy, and current volunteers can log into the portal using the “Current Volunteers, sign in here” button above.
If you have a question about using the system, please reach out to [email protected].
