We Welcome Volunteers of All Ages: Check Them Out!

We actively partner with religious organizations, schools, scouting troops, socially-minded corporations, families and wonderful individuals to strengthen our mission. Our goal is to connect kind-hearted suburban residents with hands-on volunteer opportunities that directly help Boston's homeless. We’ll work with you to find a volunteer opportunity that’s fun and fulfilling at once.

Please email us to discuss ways to get involved.

Have you recently volunteered for Generic Ministry and have a photo you can share? Email us and we’ll post it!
