Be the Hands and Feet of Jesus

Allow Christ’s Compassion to Flow Through You

Miracle Hill Ministries’ volunteer program exists to connect people who have a desire to share their God-given talents with those in our care by offering personal opportunities that are meaningful to them and beneficial to the ministry.

In many ways, our volunteers are the heart of our ministry. Volunteers don’t just help with everyday tasks in our facilities, they also play an integral role in our guests’ lives. When someone receives a helping hand or a kind smile at just the right moment, it can make all the difference in the world. Our guests have seen God at work through these perfectly-timed smiles, acts of kindness, and handshakes.

Our volunteers’ compassion radiates through the hallways of our shelters. Their joyful spirits create a palpable sense of peace for our guests—who, in many cases, haven’t felt at ease in a very, very long time.

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

1 John 3:18

  • Be at least 18 years old to volunteer individually
  • Be at least 12 years old to volunteer with an adult chaperone
  • Be at least 14 years old to volunteer in the kitchen in any facility

Become a Volunteer

There’s a Place for You at Miracle Hill

Miracle Hill proudly operates four emergency shelters, two youth homes, two addiction recovery centers, and eight thrift stores across the Upstate. We gladly accept volunteers at each of these locations.

Volunteer opportunities are different at every location and vary depending on the time of year, the size of your group, and even based on your personal strengths. It’s also very important to note that our volunteer intake process is different for each location.

We know the impact a volunteer can have on the life of our guests is incredible; therefore we encourage volunteers to invest in on-going service. However, if you are unable to commit currently to an ongoing volunteer relationship with Miracle Hill, we still want you to apply. We look forward to serving with you!
