Make a Difference

Join the Movement

If you are passionate about ending homelessness, becoming a volunteer at Gentry House is where you can put this passion to work. From Hospitality Teams, Maintenance and Grounds Teams, Resident Allies, 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!

Hospitality Team

These volunteers help welcome new residents to Gentry and Opportunity House but preparing the apartments before move-in, providing a meal for the family on their fist night, and preparing a move-in basket of essential household items.

Maintenance and Grounds

The Maintenance and Grounds Team is a group of volunteers with some type of maintenance experience who serve on a rotation to help with the upkeep of our building.

Ally Program

Volunteer Allies are partnered with one of our clients or families and check-in on them each week,to provide emotional support and encouragement. They also act as an advocate to help secure services and assistance for clients. This volunteer role requires an initial 4 hour training course plus ongoing training throughout the year.

Special Events

Gentry House hosts special events throughout the year; including, community workshops, holiday parties, awareness campaigns, and giving back days. Volunteers are an essential part to making these special events a success!
