Get Involved


Volunteers are the backbone of the Homeless Coalition.  Amazing volunteers assist with everything from referring clients, case management, tutoring, cooking, serving, cleaning, stocking the pantry, answering thousands of telephone calls, typing, copying, raising money, and serving on committees.  Hundreds of dedicated volunteers give their time because they believe in our mission.  There is always a place for more caring people. There is so much more work to do, please consider volunteering and YOU will make a difference. For more information on how YOU can get involved and get started, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Darcy Woods at (941) 627-4313, Ext. 134 or email:
