Get Involved


A hug. A smile. A shave. A handshake. Access to a telephone. A freshly laundered set of clothes. A listening ear. It doesn’t take a lot to offer a helping hand that could change the day, week or even life of one of the homeless guests who visit the Harry Tompson Center on any given day. We help because we care. We help because we know we are making a difference. We help because uplifting one person can help uplift the entire community.

And with your help, we can help more and more people every single day. We are currently most in need of greeters and a Computer Monitor. Please read the descriptions below to see if you would like to volunteer for these positions!
