Providing food, shelter, help, and hope to Missoula, Montana’s homeless and underserved.


Volunteers are the heart of our organization. Each year, they provide 9000 hours of service that make it possible to open our doors to men and women living in poverty. People are driven to volunteer for many reasons and we look forwarding to getting to know each and everyone one of them.


Prior to volunteering prospective volunteers will be interviewed to determine compatibility.

This process ensures that you have the best experience possible when at the facility. Following this interview, volunteers attend an orientation and food safety class.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 406-532-6682 or fill out our application here.

Large Groups

Due to limited space, group sizes are limited to 10 people or less at one time. This will ensure that members of your group are consistently busy while volunteering. We can accommodate larger groups with advance notice and special planning. To schedule a large group please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 406-532-6682 at least two weeks in advance or fill out our application here.
