Volunteers are essential to our mission!
Good Samaritan Haven relies on volunteers to keep the shelter running smoothly. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available for all ages, and can accommodate either groups or individuals. We are currently experiencing a shortage of volunteers at the shelter, and would love to have your help. Please review the volunteer opportunities available, and contact our staff about becoming part of our team!
