Help us prevent homelessness and rapidly return individuals to stable, affordable housing.
Journey Home is always looking for dedicated volunteers. We offer many opportunities with flexible commitment; weekly, annually, or anything in between. Review the opportunities listed below, then simply clink on the link to submit your volunteer application.
Pick-ups/Deliveries: Through our Making a House a Home program, volunteers are needed to pick up donated items and deliver them to our warehouse. These deliveries are typically scheduled during the week, but we do have a few of them on the weekends every month.
Move-in Days: Join us as we deliver furniture and other household items to newly-housed individuals and families. Move-ins are scheduled two Saturday mornings per month, as well as some weekdays, and typically last 3-4 hours. Abundant gratitude and smiles make this a very rewarding event.
Event Support: Journey Home hosts an annual fundraising gala in February, as well as a few smaller events throughout the year. Volunteer support is needed for various tasks including event planning, sponsor and auction item solicitation, and event logistics.
Photographers/Videographers: Volunteers are needed for occasional projects throughout the year and during our signature events.
Group Service Opportunities: Grab your family, coworkers, team or neighbors for a wonderful team-building and bonding experience. Whether you want to meet up at our storage facility for a morning full of deliveries, or take it a step further by adopting one of our clients and furnishing their new home with donated items, your group will help make a real difference in people’s lives.
Having a home changes everything. Whether it is a monetary gift or a donation of new or gently-used furniture or household item, YOU are making a real difference in someone’s life.
Two Ways to Donate
- Donate a new or gently-used household item, to be place in the home of a formerly homeless individual.
- Give a monetary gift to help support our mission of ending homeless in the Greater Hartford region.
