Volunteer Opportunities

At New Friends New Life, we believe everyone has something to contribute so we place individuals where they are most passionate and gifted to aid the women and families in our program. 

Wednesday Evening Meals

Wednesday evenings offer an opportunity for all women and children in the New Friends New Life program to gather together for dinner, bible study and life skills classes at a local church from 5:45 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. This volunteer opportunity includes coordinating, serving and cleaning of the meal for either women or their children.  This is a great way for a book club, church group or office to serve!

Time Commitment: 5:15-6:45 p.m.

weekday lunches and dinners 

Throughout the week, there are various opportunities to provide lunch and dinner for the women and children taking personal development and education classes at New Friends New Life. Class sizes range from 7 to 25.  Some people prefer to cook, while others cater in meals – either is fine!
