How can I help out at Christ House?
Volunteers are a vital part of the Christ House community. They come from the D.C. area, as well as from other parts of the United States and the world, as individuals, groups, or for our year-long residential volunteer program.
To volunteer as an individual in one of the positions listed below, or to suggest another way of contributing your time to Christ House, please complete an Individual Volunteer Application. You’ll be invited to schedule an orientation, after which you can begin your service. Contact our Director of Volunteers if you have additional questions.
