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 the Eugene Mission!  We are looking for mature and committed individuals to come alongside Mission staff and serve in all areas of our campus.  If you’re interested in serving, click the links below to learn more about the opportunities we have available.  If you are interested in serving in any of the areas listed below, please fill out the Volunteer Application to start the volunteer orientation process. 

Volunteer Orientation classes are held several times a month.  Once we receive your volunteer application, we will follow up with an invitation to attend the next Volunteer Orientation.   The Volunteer Orientation will include a campus tour and introduce you to the volunteer opportunities we have to offer. They last about an hour and begin promptly. Volunteer orientations are required for any individual or group leader who wants to volunteer at the Mission.  Accommodations can be made for one-on-one orientations and tours as needed.

Interested in your church, youth group, sorority or business team serving together?  Click on the link to jump to our volunteer opportunities for Groups.

Along with meeting the daily needs of our guests in our three centers, the Eugene Mission houses our Life Change Program, a faith-based 12-18 month residential relapse prevention program which draws participants from our general population and the wider community with the purpose of equipping participants with knowledge and skills to begin a new life.  Interested in coming along staff to help in teaching, mentoring, or counseling these individuals?  Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator for a Teaching and Mentorship Application.

Want to help but can’t make an ongoing commitment?  Join us for a Mission Work Day – pick a day when your group can tackle a project around the Mission!

Holidays.  There are a number of special projects around the holidays including decorating, food boxes, handing out gifts, stuffing envelopes, processing donations and more.  Holiday volunteers are required to attend one volunteer orientation prior to volunteering: Last week of October for Thanksgiving and Last week of November for Christmas.

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

If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and are unable to support themselves among you, help them as you would a foreigner and stranger, so they can continue to live among you. 36 Do not take interest or any profit from them, but fear your God, so that they may continue to live among you.
Leviticus 25:35-36
