Volunteers are what makes Grace Centers of Hope what it is, a community reaching out and serving those in need. We have a variety of opportunities onsite and offsite for individuals or groups. Serving meals, tutoring, or painting a house in Little Grace Village are just a few of the ways you can help.

We depend on volunteers to keep our programs, services, and opportunities going for our men, women, and children. We couldn’t do this without you! Thank you for partnering with us and helping to build our community well into the future.

David Clegg – Kitchen Volunteer

“It’s very rewarding to volunteer and contribute to the overall mission at Grace Centers of Hope. Working in the kitchen, I have developed friendships with other volunteers, employees, and residents in the programs. It’s a great way to give back”.

Jennifer Coppola (Valeo N.A) – Landscaping Volunteer

Every year Valeo cleans up and plants the garden at Grace Center of Hope. I have been the head of this project for 3 years now. This project is one of the favorites here at Valeo. Not only is it nice for people to get out of the office, but people also really love what Grace is doing to help people in the community. I personally have known people who have gone through the program and are living a very good successful/ clean life. I absolutely love volunteering for Grace. I find it very easy. The communication is wonderful with the people in charge of the garden year by year. I look to continue volunteering for more projects at Grace and of course the yearly garden.

“I first toured Grace Centers when I was 5 years old. I was so impacted back then and have donated and volunteered on and off my whole life. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for this place. I recently moved back to the area and wanted to get back into volunteering regularly. Now they can’t get rid of me haha! Giving back/serving/being a blessing is the most important thing we can do in our lives. I make it a priority to serve at Grace weekly and although technically I’m “volunteering to help” at Grace Centers… I feel like I’m the one that is truly blessed by this place and these people. You just have to come and experience it for yourself to understand. The people I volunteer with feel like family. I adore them. We have such a great time and I’m just so blessed by every second I’m here.

Loreen Osimowicz (aka)Grandma – Daycare Volunteer

Being a widow for less than a year, I desperately needed to find purpose in life after the death of my husband. I first came to Grace on 2/14/24 to work in the Mission Kitchen. The friendly and appreciative atmosphere was just what I needed. I now volunteer weekly at Hands of Hope, the children started calling me Grandma and I was hooked! They are helping to heal my heart with hope and joy. The laughter, hugs, and smiles are priceless, giving me purpose as I move forward in this new chapter of my life. Grace Center of Hope is a blessing for all who are involved with them!
