How can I make a difference?

Your time and resources are valuable. Get involved where you can have a direct and immediate impact on the lives of those experiencing homelessness.

  • Donate: Our generous donors make our work possible. Individuals gifts are our largest source of funding.
  • Volunteer: Carpenter’s Shelter could not operate without our volunteers. With over 1,200 volunteers donating more than 17,000 hours every year, volunteers make up 8 full-time staff members. Please consider joining this dynamic community of volunteers who support the shelter 365 days of the year from 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • Advocate: Communities change when people are concerned, informed and involved. Please consider spreading the word about Carpenter’s Shelter by sharing with your family, friends and community how Carpenter’s is proactively working to end homelessness.
