Your help makes a difference. More than 5,000 volunteers every year help Pine Street Inn provide shelter, housing and other crucial services to homeless men and women. Donations of time and talent help us continue the mission of ending homelessness. Thank you for being involved!

Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and groups at our shelter and housing locations. See lists of our volunteer opportunities for Groups or Individuals & Families


We are so inspired by the number of volunteers who want to make a difference this season! Please note: we are now at capacity and are no longer seeking volunteers for Thanksgiving

Who are Our Volunteers?

  • People who want to help the nearly 2,000 people we serve each day begin to rebuild their lives.
  • Family and friends who want to spend time together while doing good.
  • Corporate, civic and faith groups that want to demonstrate their commitments to helping people in their communities.
  • People who want to learn more about the problems of homelessness and poverty in Boston.
