Volunteerism

Volunteer Opportunities

Every year hundreds of community members give of themselves to help Wellspring achieve our mission to end the cycle of family homelessness. Without this dedicated support, we would not be able serve as many families as we do, nor reach those who need our help most.

Wellspring’s committed volunteers give their time in a variety of ways—from helping maintain the Family Store to providing administrative support to assisting with special projects. Others serve in volunteer leadership roles with our organization. For more information, please contact Saidah McKissick, Volunteer and Development Coordinator, at 206-902-4256 ext. 146, smckissick@wellspringfs.org.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Due to COVID-19 we are offering opportunities to volunteer virtually. For on-site volunteering opportunities, we are taking full safety precautions to keep volunteers, families, and staff safe.
