Volunteer Opportunities

For more than fifty years, the Urban Mission has dedicated itself to improving the lives of families living in the Ohio Valley through hunger alleviation, homeless prevention, community development and neighborhood reinvestment.  It is our mission to provide integrated services that nurture, restore dignity and serve as a witness of the love of God to a hurting world.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Urban Mission.  Groups can choose to volunteer for one day, a weekend, or experience a week long immersion into the work of the Urban Mission.

  • Preparation of food at Unity Kitchen
  • Gardening at the Unity Garden
  • Stocking food at the Choice Pantry
  • Home Repair including construction, painting, siding, plumbing
  • Ramp repair or construction
