Thank you for your interest in The Gatehouse volunteer program. The Gatehouse is a place and program where women and children in crisis can discover a new path for permanent change. From the very beginning, volunteers have played a vital role in providing the ground work for the success of our program.

Volunteer opportunities are currently available Monday - Friday, mornings and afternoons. A limited number of weekend and evening options exist as well. Shifts are usually once per week at the same day/time, although some opportunities exist with more flexibility.
