Volunteer With Us
It takes a community to build community!
We welcome everyone who is rooted in community and fueled by kindness to volunteer at the DI. It would be impossible to offer the kinds of programs and services we do without the generous support from our dedicated volunteers and community supporters who share our energy to build a community where everyone can find their home.
The DI has a place for you, whether you’re looking for a long-term or short-term commitment, at the frontlines or behind the scenes. Our volunteers support in various areas such as meal service, meal prep, sorting donations, supporting staff at community outreach and educational events, and more! Do you want to share kindness, energy, and talents to improve your community? We would love to hear from you!
