Volunteer

The Lord’s Place staff is thrilled to have volunteers to support our programs. Volunteers play an integral part in providing our clients with esteem-building, respectful services.

A key need is for volunteers at our Joshua Thrift Stores, 7600 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach and 750 S. Military Trail, Suite A, West Palm Beach, and (soon) 905 US Highway 1, Lake Park.  For store hours, click here.  This opportunity is generally for adults. However, individuals 16 and 17 years old can volunteer if accompanied by an adult.

To volunteer with us we ask that you fill out this application and then attend one of our monthly volunteer orientations. After this point we will be able to match you with a program that best matches your interests and skill sets!

Volunteer Testimonial

We had a very inspiring experience. Our client started telling us his story. It was sad and involved. I fought back tears but listened carefully,” said Mike Witt. He and his wife Mikki volunteer in the job training classroom. “Many times he stopped just to tell us how much it means to him that we cared. Now, I realize that the job ready tasks are important, but it is the fact that we are taking time out of our life to help them individually that is so very important.”
