Homeless Shelter Volunteer

Without our volunteers, Sheltered by Grace would not be able to deliver the holistic services that we do to look after our clients with a view to transforming their lives. We value each and every one of our volunteers, and honour them for their time and dedication. Volunteering can change the lives not only of those that you volunteer your time to help , but also to yourself. The benefits of volunteering are many.

If you would like to know more about how you can become a homeless shelter volunteer and give your time to help with Sheltered by Grace, please complete our online form and contact us. We have a variety of things that volunteers can do from helping our clients with case management, helping in the house to clean or make a meal down to just having a cup of tea or coffee with one of our clients. We would love to hear from you!

Brett Williams was a previous client who struggled with addiction due to an accident and chronic back pain. Through ongoing support and case management, he has turned his life around and now has a unit of his own. He volunteers his time mentoring clients and offering support and care to all the clients at Sheltered by Grace.​
