Our volunteers provide valuable services to our students of Mission Academy and guests of Nueva Vida Haven. Whether serving a meal, assisting in the computer lab, organizing in-kind donations, or discipling students, each volunteer is a special part of the Rescue Mission Team. In return, they receive the satisfaction of knowing they are personally helping those experiencing homelessness create positive, lasting change in their lives.
Please note that we are unable to work with court-mandated volunteers at this time.
Groups (corporate, church, school and others) are always welcome to volunteer with our meal service, assist in the warehouse, and help with special events. Please call 619.819.1897 for other ideas or to schedule a specific date.
Not able to start volunteering immediately? Host a Drive (Urgent Needs, Food, or Hygiene Kits): You can hold a drive and collect needed items at your school, church, place of employment, community center, or neighborhoods-it’s an easy and very significant way to support the Rescue Mission! Thank you for doing your part to help the men, women and children here at the Mission.
All volunteers, with the exception of those participating in a special event or one-time group volunteer, opportunity MUST submit an application and go through an on-line background check process at an $18 cost to the individual.
Due to the large interest in our volunteer program, volunteer needs and opportunities change frequently. View current opportunities below:
