Volunteer Your Time

If you are passionate about ending homelessness, becoming a volunteer at Nazareth Housing is where you can put this passion to work. Our volunteers are vital in our mission to provide housing stability and economic independence among families, seniors, and youth of New York City. 

Volunteer opportunities include:

Louise’s Pantry is open every Tuesday in the Lower East Side and every Wednesday in the Bronx. We are looking for friendly volunteers to help clients put together pantry bags; assist seniors getting up and down the stairs; ease the flow of service; and translate information for clients in Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese.

Nazareth Housing hosts multiple special events throughout the year where volunteers are needed to distribute donated items to families; serve food; read to children; assist senior clients; and engage in arts and crafts with children.

From January to April, Nazareth Housing seeks qualified volunteers to assist community members electronically file their taxes through our free VITA Tax Preparation Program.

Nazareth Housing frequently needs assistance with unique and exciting opportunities. These opportunities may require special skills or experience and are typically organized in direct conjunction with the volunteer group. Volunteers can revitalize building interiors; beautify building exteriors; organize theater camps; chaperone children’s trips to New York City landmarks; or host a specialized workshop
