Volunteer

Our volunteers are vital in our mission to provide housing stability and economic independence among families, seniors, and youth of New York City.

If you are passionate about ending homelessness, becoming a volunteer at Nazareth Housing is where you can put this passion to work. From Louise’s Pantry, holiday parties, renewal projects, and special events, there are many opportunities to make a difference.

We are stronger when we work together, and so we welcome all those who wish to join us in our mission!
