Become a Volunteer

New Day Urban Ministries is an almost all volunteer-powered organization with a small and mighty paid staff. Some volunteers serve on a weekly basis and others drop in to help as time allows. Volunteers serve as case workers or in the food pantry or clothing room. Others donate time as greeters or on the annual fundraisers, Chopped at Church or Golf4Good. Additional volunteers help organize special food or clothing drives at the churches.  Work parties are welcome and help with all kinds of projects. Please contact us and let us know how you or your group would like to help.

    We’re on a mission to help the homeless, urban poor, veterans and those just released from jail or prison.
