Need for Volunteers

Every year, we at the Presbyterian Night Shelter heavily rely on the service and commitment of over 6,000 volunteers to assist in serving our homeless guests. As we continue the fight to end homelessness in Fort Worth and Tarrant County, guiding the journey home for nearly 5,000 guests each year would not be possible without dedicated volunteers. Whether you desire to volunteer as an individual or as part of a group, the impact and gift of your time will forever change the lives of our guests. Please note that some volunteer opportunities may require a background check with an associated fee of $15. Should this be necessary, we ask that our volunteers underwrite its cost.


Volunteer Activities

Our volunteers graciously give their time to many projects, including interior or exterior beautification projects, life-skills training, organizing children playgroups, and serving meals, among others. Please note that shelter staff will make every effort to align the talents and interests of volunteers in a manner that best serves and meets the needs of our guests.

Volunteer Opportunities

Please be advised during holiday season, our opportunities to volunteer are filled quickly.
