We succeed at what we do because the community helps us do it.

That means you.

Perhaps you would like to donate food or clothing.

We also have options for individuals who want to volunteer or groups giving time together at Matthew’s Hope. We have ideas you can do without coming to our site and ways you can spend a few hours with us.

Volunteering begins with completing an application and a $10.00 fee for a mandatory background check, unless you are coming for one time or just working in our garden.

Every year, Matthew’s Hope logs 50,000 volunteer hours. From our beginning in 2010, we have been able to provide services to so many because of our volunteers.


Our primary volunteer day is Tuesday, where men, women and children can help girls scouts

  • sort and catalogue donations

  • launder the clothes of homeless guests

  • cook and serve lunch

  • serve as an advocate to help set goals with homeless guests

  • stock and distribute food in the “Garden of Eatin’ Pantry”

  • distribute donated items to those in need

  • talk and pray with guests

  • teach a class on fighting addictions or job training

  • cut hair

  • get government assistance for homeless guests

  • wash and detail vehicles


Other days of the week, volunteers can:

  • weed, plant and harvest fruits and vegetables in our onsite Garden of Hope

  • teach Bible study (Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening)

  • write grant requests

  • research and write articles for our website and magazine

Maybe you have an idea we have not thought of!

Contact us by email at Barry@matthewshopeministries.org or by telephone at 407.905.9500, extension 606.

You may also submit your application to volunteer here.

We look forward to working together. Help us help them to help themselves.
