Each and every volunteer at John Hope Settlement House touches the lives of our families and children in rich and unique ways. Our ability to provide such a wide range of quality services is achieved through the generous donation of the time and talent of individuals throughout the City and State.


Our volunteers represent a broad cross section of our community and include neighborhood residents, youth, college student and professionals. To volunteer in one of our services please contact the Department Director within the service area you are interested in:
