“I cherish the compassion of the people I serve alongside with. I can definitely sense God’s presence. I talk to all kinds of people and connect them to an amazing ministry that is helping to serve the homeless in multiple locations. I’m so very blessed to be a part of this ministry.”

— Angela

Volunteers are a vital part of the ministry at Waterfront Rescue Mission. The Mission believes that volunteers are called by God, and are “created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)

Calvary Chapel Youth GroupWaterfront Rescue Mission has opportunities for one-time volunteers as well as more committed volunteers called High Impact Volunteers. High Impact Volunteers have specific duties that create opportunities for them to serve the Lord alongside the Mission’s staff.

The first step in becoming a High Impact Volunteer is to sign up for a Waterfront Experience, an in-depth volunteer orientation designed to bring together committed volunteers and the ministry of helping the homeless and addicted.
