We have plenty of ways for you to serve.

Volunteering at the mission

How to Volunteer

“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble.  Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” – Isaiah 58:10

The Charlotte Rescue Mission strives to provide individual and group volunteers with meaningful opportunities to use their God-given talents, time, and resources, whether serving on or off our campuses.  Serving with the Mission allows volunteers to demonstrate the unconditional love and acceptance of Jesus to our residents, many of whom have lost their belief that they are worthy of such a gift.  Through service, volunteers strengthen their community by participating in the transformation of its broken members.

EVERY volunteer serving with the Charlotte Rescue Mission MUST have a volunteer profile in our volunteer management system.  Setting up your profile is quick and easy!  Click here to create your profile.

Thanksgiving Community Meal

Volunteer signups for our Thanksgiving Community Meal are now open!  You can view and register for Thanksgiving shifts by clicking here: www.thanksgiving.cltrescue.volunteerhub.com

Volunteer registration for our Christmas Community Meal will open on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at noon.  You can expedite the process by creating your volunteer profile now (this will be required to register)!  Visit www.cltrescue.volunteerhub.com to get started.  Contact Christy Baker at Christy.baker@charlotterescuemission.org with questions.

We are launching a new online volunteer management system on January 1, 2016; volunteers must pre-register for each opportunity. Please note that we do not have any drop in service opportunities.  As we are a secure campus, online check in will be required when you arrive.

For volunteer opportunities prior to January 2016 (with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas Day) or questions about how you can get involved, please contact Christy Baker (christy.baker@charlotterescuemission.org) for Rebound, or Riley Beetner (riley.beetner@charlotterescuemission.org) for Dove’s Nest.



Given that we serve children that are coming to us out of difficult and sometimes traumatic circumstances, it is our responsibility to ensure their safety at Dove’s Nest. We are now requiring that volunteers (age 18 and up) be screened with a background check. We have arranged these services through CertifiedBackground.com and will give you more information on “how to” go about doing the background check once you have gone through orientation. For current North Carolina residents the cost is $25 and for those living outside of North Carolina the cost is $45. Additionally, our facility is limited to volunteers ages 16 and up. Some of our children are embarrassed or ashamed of their circumstances and we want to protect their sensitive state of mind by ensuring them that they will never have to worry about running into a peer while living at our facility.

For more information on volunteering at Dove’s Nest, please contact Riley Beetner 704-332-3999 ext. 110 or riley.beetner@charlotterescuemission.org.
