Volunteer Services

Volunteers are a key component to the continued success at MainChance Multi-Service Center. Opportunities are open to all organizations, groups and individuals who can ensure a safe and welcoming environment at our agency.

Volunteers can serve lunch and dinner at Hinton’s Cafe any day of the week, help with sorting clothing donations, assist with our monthly food pantries or help in other areas of the organization that are in need.  Volunteers must be accompanied by adults 21 or over if they are between the ages of 16-18.

Due to COVID-19, we can no longer accommodate large volunteer groups. We can only accommodate between 4 to 5 people per lunch and dinner shifts. We are requesting all interested volunteers to provide updated COVID-19 vaccinated results to volunteer. To volunteer for the soup kitchen, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at:
