Volunteering as a Group
Over 1000 organizations partner with Metropolitan Ministries each year. Faith groups, civic groups, schools, & businesses come alongside us every day providing thousands of volunteers a year. Sign up below and the Volunteer Services Team will reach out to you shortly.
We’ll need a little bit of advanced notice with your group to make sure that we are able to place you in the right opportunity. Typically, we’ll need to book weekday volunteer opportunities one week in advance. You may have to book a Saturday a month ahead of time.

What It Is
Metro Immersion is an impactful opportunity for organizations to engage with Metropolitan Ministries’ mission to serve those who are homeless and at risk of becoming homeless in an “up-close and personal” way.
Participants spend a day immersing themselves in the problems facing our community through educational activities and service assignments.
