Volunteer with Shelter KC

Use your unique talents and abilities to serve Kansas City’s poor and homeless individuals who make their way to Shelter KC. We rely on thousands of volunteers who serve with their time and talents to keep our rescue mission running. Our volunteer program is here to support and strengthen our staff, enhance our client services and offer a positive and life-changing experience to our volunteers.

Whether you are interested in volunteering as an individual or group, student or senior, church or corporation, we have a place for you!
