Get Involved

Volunteers are the glue that holds the mission of Hope House together. Our volunteers provide personal skills and talents as well as a dedication, commitment and support to Hope House. Special training and background checks are conducted on all volunteers who plan to work one-on-one in the house with residents.


Be the Change


Covid-19 Announcement

Unfortunately due to the current public health crisis we have temporarily suspended our volunteer programing for volunteers working inside the house. We are incredibly grateful for the many calls and messages we’ve received asking what help we need during this unprecedented time. Please join our standby volunteers list so we can contact you when our volunteer programing resumes.


We are happy to host volunteer groups that would like to help with outside projects. Email jperkins@hopehousefoundation.org for info.

Hope House is run 24/7 by a dynamic team of volunteers who partner with a House Manager. Volunteers are responsible women, age 18 or older, who manage the house during their desired shifts(s). All volunteers participate in an orientation after filling out an application and undergoing a general background check. While not required, volunteers are also encouraged to share their special skills, hobbies, or interests during their time at the home.

All prospective new Volunteers are required to submit an application and attend a New Volunteer Orientation. Hope House invites you to attend an Orientation session to learn about the exciting ways you and your organization can help support the mission of helping woman and children experiencing situational homelessness in the Lake Norman area. Please email jperkins@hopehousefoundation.org for more information. 

Interested in volunteering? Fill out this volunteer application. Once submitted you will be contacted by a staff member to set up an orientation and tour.

If your church group, business team, or community organization would like to volunteer at the Hope House, or if you personally would like to serve as a community volunteer in one of the categories mentioned above, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator with your interest and area of expertise, email Jessie Perkins at jperkins@HopeHouseFoundation.org. We will ask your group leader to join us for a tour, after which we will match your group with a project that meets your volunteer priorities and our most pressing needs.

The Hope House Foundation welcomes the opportunity for the community to assist us with organizing a donation drive. If considering a donation drive, please keep in mind that Hope House does not have the resources to pick up items, but would welcome the delivery of donations.  Donation drop offs should be coordinated with  jperkins@hopehousefoundation.org

Please Note:

Please be aware that a fraudulent organization called Hope for Domestic Violence is soliciting donations using the Hope House name. We are not associated with them, and the Hope House Foundation does not solicit in the community. Please do your research before donating and read up on Hope for Domestic Violence or "Nspire." More information can be found here

Event volunteers serve as “workers” at fundraisers sponsored directly by the Hope House Foundation or at events where Hope House is a beneficiary of some the proceeds of that event. Volunteers often serve as greeters, silent auction helpers, and ambassadors of Hope House by providing brochures and answering general questions. Email jperkins@hopehousefoundation.org for details. 


If you are having a fund raising event and would like to make The Hope House Foundation

the beneficiary please submit this Third Party Fundraising Agreement. We thank you for your support in making HOPE happen!
