Volunteer

Do you want to have a positive impact on homelessness in your community? Come volunteer at the Eugene Mission!

How do I volunteer?

Thank you for your interest in serving at Eugene Mission!  We are always looking for mature and committed individuals to come alongside Eugene Mission staff and have a positive impact on the under-housed and needy in our community. As a volunteer at Eugene Mission, you become part of a team and your contribution makes a difference on many levels. 

In most volunteer roles, you will assist Eugene Mission staff and be a part of meeting the very practical needs of our guests – food, clothing, shelter, and more – but you will also help raise the level of ‘wellness’ campus wide as a healthy community member here to love on our guests through your service and cheerful encouragement.  There are opportunities to directly serve our guests as well as help out behind the scenes.  It is the Community Engagement Team’s goal to find the right fit for you given your preference and skills as well as meet the operational needs of Eugene Mission.

If serving at Eugene Mission interests you, please fill out one of the Volunteer Applications below to start the process. We welcome individuals and group to participate in the work we do here.  We are also hosting undergraduate and graduate-level internships across a wide range of departments.

And if you would like to engage with us in another way, let us know.

Once we receive your volunteer application, we will follow up with an invitation to attend the next ‘Meet Eugene’s Mission’ Orientation.   This orientation is a one-time class that includes a physical tour of our 7.5 acre campus, and an explanation of our services, who we serve, and how you can be a part of it. Volunteer orientations are required for any individual or group leader who wants to volunteer at Eugene Mission.  Accommodations can be made for one-on-one orientations and tours as needed.

Here are the upcoming dates:

  • Thursday, November 2nd 9 – 11 am
  • Tuesday, November 14th 12:30 – 2:30 pm
  • Thursday, November 2nd 11:30 – 1:30 pm

If you have any questions, please email or call our Volunteer Coordinator, at Volunteer@EugeneMission.org or 541.344.3251 x 160.
