Be a Volunteer

As a volunteer at The Rescue Mission, we want to ensure that your experience here is enriching and positive. Integrity, professionalism, confidentiality, and safety are key components of our volunteer program.

At this time we are not accepting new volunteers due to COVID-19

As you are aware, The Rescue Mission has been implementing enhanced safety precautions in collaboration with the CDC and Allen County Board of Health. As such, we are suspending Volunteer Services until further notice in an effort to minimize the risk of exposure to residents, staff, and the public. We appreciate your dedication and desire to serve but must put safety first during this time. God Bless and stay safe!

  • Volunteers must read and agree to the Policies and Procedures/Confidentiality Agreement.
  • We will conduct a limited criminal background check with the Indiana State Police for all our prospective volunteers.
