Volunteer Your Time

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Remember to have everyone in your group sign up online. Please provide as much information as possible, so we are best able to meet your needs.

Click here to volunteer this season, and thank you so much for being a part of the Rainbow Team! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we do not have any on site volunteer opportunities at this time. Consider hosting an online fundraiser for much needed operating costs. Become a Fundraiser by clicking the green button.

Each year, nearly 300 volunteers assist us as we seek to provide winter, emergency overnight shelter to women experiencing homelessness in our community. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any questions. We look forward to having you join us.

We will need your help in volunteering in these areas next season:
