Helpful Information as You Begin

Thank you for your interest in the City Rescue Mission of Lansing and for your desire to BE a RESCUER by volunteering to help us help others!
 
Once you have submitted your application the volunteer coordinator will contact with you to discuss volunteer options and availability. After reviewing the application, our coordinator will connect with you via phone or e-mail to discuss volunteer options; not all volunteer opportunities are available at all times. Our goal is to find and schedule you for an opportunity that fills a need for the Mission and works within your schedule. (Please give our volunteer coordinator a few business days to review the application and contact you.)

Helpful tips: Please note that our volunteer opportunities are task related and do not involve extensive interaction with guests as we aim to protect and value their privacy at all times.

Groups: Initially, our volunteer coordinator will need to only connect with the group contact person. In your reply email, be sure to explain your group size and desires as volunteers. This will help give our coordinator a better idea of how we can accommodate your group. Please note: meal service is very limited for groups; however, our thrift store is an excellent location for group opportunities.

Community Service: If you are volunteering for court-ordered community service or are part of the diversion program, please see the Community Service Volunteer Form. This is not the correct form.
