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.
Be the Hands and Feet of Jesus
Allow Christ’s Compassion to Flow Through You
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

Become a Volunteer
There’s a Place for You at Miracle Hill
Miracle Hill operates four rescue missions, two addiction recovery centers, a foster care campus, a foster care program and eight thrift stores across the Upstate. Most of these locations offer volunteer opportunities, though during some seasons there are fewer.
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 may be different for each location.
Anyone in need of completing Community Service and/or PTI hours should click on our thrift store link below!
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!
