IPH Opens Doors to volunteers looking to support our mission. 
By providing meals, essential items, and other services, volunteers bring warmth and energy that inspire hope for all the guests we serve.

Provide a Meal

Grab your favorite recipe and prepare a meal for shelter guests to enjoy. Home cooked meals keep our guests energized and prepared for the day ahead. Not so hot in the kitchen? Arranging for your favorite restaurant for takeout or catering works just as well!


Schedule a Meal


Collect items that our guests use every day. Having critical items such as hygiene products, cleaning supplies, and linens in stock is important, especially as we head into the winter season.

Donate Wish List Items


Check back here as seasonal and one-time opportunities to volunteer become available. Current additional opportunities include:

Clothing Pantry Volunteer - help sort clothing donations that will end up on display in our Clothing Pantry. Guests can browse our clothing selections and receive items at no charge.
