Volunteers add so much to Friendship Home. Serving an average of 140 women and children each day with a limited staff means each volunteer and each hour given is precious to us.

When you volunteer, you not only bring extra hands to help and skills to share, you truly demonstrate the “friendship” in Friendship Home.

Together we can help survivors restore hope and trust through our community’s kindness.
