Volunteer Opportunities


There are many ways to help people struggling with homelessness and one way is with the gift of your time.

We are always looking for volunteers to help around the shelter and support our front-line staff and residents. Responsibilities include welcoming and socializing with residents in a friendly and non-judgmental manner, as well as minor cleaning and maintenance tasks. Ryandale Shelter welcomes volunteers with unique skills such as playing cards, preparing a meal to bring in to the shelter, and assistance with fundraising tasks.


In addition to gifts of time we appreciate donations of clothing, food, bedding, household items, toiletries, service and cash – click here to donate funds to Ryandale Shelter directly or online. Ryandale Shelter is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization and is able to provide charitable tax receipts.
