Individual Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for reaching out to Pine Street Inn! We rely on volunteer support 365 days a year.
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.
If you are interested in volunteering on an ongoing basis, please take a look at the three simple steps below to get started, and we will be in touch with you as quickly as possible. Please note that during the holiday months we are not able to place individual volunteers right away and appreciate your patience with our application process.
If you are interested in volunteering for Christmas, there is no need to fill out the volunteer application - please send all holiday inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our holiday wait-list.
Feel free to contact the Volunteer Department with any questions: 617.892.9184, or email@example.com
Thank you for your support of the mission to end homelessness!
becoming a Volunteer involves three simple steps:
STEP 1: initial telephone meetingSchedule a time for a meeting via telephone with us by calling 617.892.9184.
Chatting via telephone will give you a chance to learn more about volunteer opportunities with us, and whether we are the right fit for you, your group, etc. Once this step is complete, we will invite you to fill out a Volunteer Application.
STEP 2: DO THE PAPERWORK
*Note: Please remember to include a photocopy of a state-issued photo ID with your CORI Form.

Pine Street Inn | Volunteer Programs

STEP 3: ATTEND AN ORIENTATION
Help Pine Street serve breakfast any day of the week. Breakfast servers are needed from 6 to 7 a.m. at our emergency shelter in Boston's South End.
FILL-IN MEAL SERVICE
Do you live or work near Pine Street? Are you available in the evenings? If so, you may want to consider becoming a fill-in meal server. Occasionally, Pine Street needs last-minute help for dinner service. When this situation arises, we turn to our fill-in volunteers for extra support. Because not every fill-in volunteer is able to offer help at all times, we rely on fill-in servers to ensure that we always have enough volunteers to help.
The health clinic at Pine Street is in need of friendly and outgoing volunteers to greet guests in our Men's Clinic. Shifts are available in the morning and evening Monday-Friday.
