Open Door Mission is rolling out a brand-new volunteering platform called VOMO | Virtuous Volunteer that is going to help us serve you and our guests better. This new platform will be our Volunteer Hub allowing us to easily communicate all the current volunteering opportunities at the Mission.

New Volunteer

Volunteering at Open Door Mission means more than just giving time. It means feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, cherishing those in need, and sharing the love of Christ! Join us to make an impact every month. Check out volunteer opportunities and sign up today!!

Volunteer Talk & Tour

Join us for a one-hour presentation and tour of our campus. During this time, we will explain the various volunteer opportunities available at Open Door Mission.

Returning Volunteer

You’re always welcome back! If you’re ready to volunteer again, please access our Volunteer Portal below to get started.

Volunteer Club

You’re invite to our monthly Friends of the Mission meeting! Bring a friend and enjoy a free, delicious lunch during a quick Mission Moment presentation. If your time permits, stay to volunteer after the meeting to help make sandwiches.

Volunteer in Place

Make a difference from the safety and comfort of your own home, church, or business.  There are many projects that can make an impact on others including organizing a virtual drive to meet an urgent need.

Court Ordered Community Service/Diversion Hours

Court ordered community service/diversion hours are available at the Donation Outreach Centers: Timberlake, Elkhorn & Council Bluffs. You may self-schedule your volunteer time after your application has been approved.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’…

whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Matthew 25:35-36, 40
