Enrich the Next Generation to Achieve Growth & Excellence

Volunteers are a valued and essential part of the functioning and development of Place of Hope. We are in consistent need of people who are willing to volunteer their time and skills in whatever area they can. Whether you are a mentor, a cook, athlete or a handyman, we invite and encourage you to utilize your God-given abilities to serve alongside us in this ministry. Many volunteers serve individually, as part of a small group and part of a large corporate team. Anyone can be a change maker right here in our community!
