2018 Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are an essential part of the Gospel Center Rescue Mission (GCRM). We could not have helped the poor and homeless for over 77 years if it were not for the help of volunteers. Volunteers are provided meals and are considered part of the GCRM Team for social activities. They must agree to the GCRM Statement of Faith and a 6 month commitment (corresponds to the New Life Program 6 month length) of 1 or more hours a week. If God has been tugging at your heart to volunteer please consider the following:
New Life Program (NLP) Counselor:
Provide counseling for NLP participants on a 1-on-1 basis to assess their current mental, emotional, and spiritual status. A measurable plan will be established based on this information along with other requirements for the Students to finish the NLP and graduate. Previous experience or Undergraduate/Graduate Counseling Internship is a requirement.
Based on your skills/experience and 24 hour notice, you will report to our Maintenance Director for assignment of maintenance work orders. The 6 month commitment and recommended at 4-8 hour blocks of work justify the GCRM campus and maintenance system familiarization and then efficiency which grows with length of service.
Learning Center Educator:
Education is 1 of the core principles of our New Life Programs. We need Volunteers to oversee our Students as they work in either the men’s or women’s learning centers to further basic life skills, math and English and/or achieve their GED.
We serve children from infant through 18 years at our New Hope Family Shelter. From tutoring to child care, you'll provide ongoing support and care for children who need it most. We're looking for adults (ages 18+) to make an impact on the next generation.
Within our New Life Program case management and Homeless Recuperative Care, drivers are needed to transport Students/Clients to and from appointments corresponding to their health, job interviews, housing and other aspects of transforming them back into productive citizens.
Group Community Service Projects:
Factors such as group size, skill levels, group’s ability to pay for materials and the amount, and time period will factor in the projects that can be presented.
