Become a Volunteer

Becoming a Volunteer

The first step for all our volunteers is attending a Prospective Volunteer Introduction.  The "PVI" is a brief overview of The City Mission and the volunteer opportunities we have available.  It's a great chance for you to meet our staff face-to-face, learn about the volunteer experience that is the best fit for you, and see how your commitment can impact the lives of men, women and children in crisis.

To begin your volunteer experience, sign up to attend a PVI:

Tues., Sept. 20 at 5:30pm at Laura's Home: 18120 Puritas Ave., Cleveland 44135

Tues., Oct. 18 at 5:30pm at Main Campus: 5310 Carnegie Ave., Cleveland 44103

Sat., Nov. 12 at 10:00am at Laura's Home:  18120 Puritas Ave., Cleveland 44135

In the comments section, please specify which PVI you are able to attend. Thank you!
