Meal partners

Our meal partners are individuals, businesses, churches, and friend groups who graciously take the time to prepare or buy a meal for our youth. This is a heavy lift, as on average we see 45-50 youth a day!

Due to COVID-19 and our limited services, we are not currently scheduling meal partners for our location on S. Naches in Yakima, WA.

If you are interested in preparing a meal for our facility in Sunnyside, WA contact Maggie Treichler at maggie@rodshouse.org.

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!
