Thank you for your interest in volunteering with The Delores Project. To sign up for a volunteer orientation please complete the individual or group applications below.
Please note that we request a 6-month commitment from our program volunteers. Special events and donation drives are a great way to be involved if you would like a shorter time commitment!

The Delores Project relies on over 800 volunteers annually to support our mission and programs. Nearly 90% of the daily meals and snacks are provided and served by volunteers. The combination of meal providers and in-kind donations of house supplies saves The Delores Project over $100,000 each year. Here are some of the regular volunteer opportunities available:
