Become a Volunteer

Whether it is helping us with projects around the house, serving a meal, or just talking to a young person about their day, volunteers are an essential part of our mission at Rod’s House. We are always looking for new volunteers who are eager to help empower youth to reach their full potential!

We also need volunteers to help us with facility maintenance, fundraising, housekeeping, organizing, sorting donations, and other projects that keep Rod’s House running smoothly. Whatever your skills are, we want to help find a way to use them to make a difference!
