Congregations for the Homeless (CFH) volunteers pave the way for those experiencing homeless on the Eastside to break the cycle of homelessness and lead a stable and productive life. The heart of our program is the more than 3,600 volunteers who bring meals every day of the year, and who donate their time and money to make our clients feel welcome, cared for, and provided for with food and other essentials.
CFH requires volunteer training for many of these opportunities, which require working closely with our clients. If you are interested in bringing your talents to CFH as a volunteer, please contact Sarah Bustad at firstname.lastname@example.org
