Thank you for your interest in volunteering at André House! Whether you are interested in volunteering one time, once a month, or every week, we have a volunteer opportunity that is right for you. André House relies on volunteers to sustain our ministry. Without you, we would not be able to meet the various needs that exist in downtown Phoenix. As an organization, we are small in numbers – just seven Core Community Members. Over 10,500 volunteers are needed each year to make our ministry possible by assisting us in preparing and serving food, washing dishes, cleaning, sorting donations and praying for us and those we serve. We are incredibly thankful for each and every individual who volunteers with us. We feel blessed to work alongside you in accomplishing our mission.
André House has five primary volunteer opportunities available:
1. Dinner Service
Our evening meal is served 6 nights a week, Saturday through Thursday. André House is closed on Fridays. The meal is served from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Approximately 550 to 750 plates are served each evening.
