WAYS TO HELP

There isn't a non-profit or church/faith-based organization 

that would turn away volunteers.

Determine your passion, find an organization that fits it, and contact them.

It's that simple!

  • I'm passionate about food insecurity, so I volunteer at the Huntertown Food Bank. 

  • I'm passionate about immigrant and refugee issues, so I serve on the Board of Directors at Amani Family Services. And, I lead a volunteer ministry, 'Welcoming Fort Wayne', that promotes immigrant integration into the Greater Fort Wayne area. 

  • I'm passionate about where I live, so I serve on the Board of Directors for the Pine Valley Community Association; and volunteer at the Huntertown Family Park
