Since opening its doors in 1972, community members and volunteers have contributed invaluable support to Next Move’s mission of serving families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Our staff and clients are grateful for the care and commitment of community members, and our team strives to provide rewarding volunteer experiences for both individuals and groups.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Next Move volunteer opportunities offer structured service opportunities through our children’s services, community donation center, and family shelter kitchen. We Gare always developing additional volunteer opportunities, so feel free to contact us regarding which options best fit your interests.
