Thank you for your interest in volunteering for The Delores Project. We are gearing up to move into our new shelter at Arroyo Village in February. At this time, volunteer opportunities are limited to MEAL PROVIDERS ONLY. For more information on contributing a meal, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lilly Redford – lilly@thedeloresproject.org, (303) 534-5411 ext. 110.

We encourage you to return to the website in February to apply as an individual or volunteer group. Volunteer orientations will start in February.

Happy Holidays!


The Delores Project relies on thousands of volunteers who support us with their donation of time and expertise. Ninety percent of the meals and snacks (nearly 50,000 each year) served at The Delores Project are provided by volunteers. These donations of meals in combination with in-kind donations of house supplies, saves us almost $90,000 each year. Below are several volunteer opportunities regularly available at The Delores Project.

  • Meal provider (cooks meal either off-site or at The Delores Project for 50 – 70 people)
  • Meal server (helps serve meals that are brought in by other groups)
  • Errand Runner (picks up donations, delivers laundry, etc.)
  • Shelter Organization and Clean Up
  • In-Kind Donation Drive

Do you teach Yoga or Zumba? Are you a massage therapist or hair stylist? What about an artist? Whatever your area of expertise, The Delores Project may need your services.

We require new volunteers to attend attend an orientation once you've applied. Please find our volunteer application and orientation sign-up here:
