If you would like to help in the His Way Office and have a flexible schedule, let us know.
Greeters are the FIRST connection for the women as they arrive at His Way. Make sure the women are warmly welcomed, hugged and blessed as they come through the doors. Assist the Welcome Ministry by ensuring there are Welcome Bags ready for our first-time visitors, sign-in sheets are ready for those “manning” the interior door…
Resources are one of the most valuable parts of our ministry. If you have a “passion” to see valuable tools put into the hands of women, then this is the place for you! You will assist ladies with purchases, taking money, making change, etc.
We are always on the lookout for motivated community members to become a part of our Board of Directors. The Board consists of individuals from many different backgrounds and experiences, which helps us move towards our goal of supporting and maintaining Austin’s House and its vision.
Volunteers lend helping hands during special events. You can help with the planning, help us set up or take down, lead an activity, greet guest or more! Besides being great fun, these events are critical for the community contact and fundraising capabilities of Urban Roots.
