Volunteer Opportunities

Due to HIPAA Laws and our Confidentiality Policy, all volunteers must be at least 21 years of age.

If you are under 21, you can still get involved by holding a drive for new socks and/or underwear, men and women’s business suits, khakis and white shirts, or shoes to help our youth succeed in the next steps of their journey towards productive adulthood. Thank you for your interest!

Please contact our volunteer coordinator at chgavolunteer@covenanthouse.org before hosting a drive or creating outreach kits to determine our current needs.
