How to Help

We always need spiritual, volunteer, and financial help along with donated goods (see the list below).


First and foremost, we appreciate your prayers for our homeless guests as well as for the ministry of Grace in Action. In addition, we would be happy to accept donated Bibles, especially larger print, paperback copies. An in-kind donation receipt is available for your tax records should you donate Bibles or other spiritual reading materials for our Grace in Action guests.


We have volunteer needs for lunch preparation (once a month) and lunch and hospitality service (Minister of Hospitality; once or twice a week). Volunteer requirements:

Lunch Preparer:
– Provide and prepare lunch for our guests once a month
– Obtain and prepare sandwiches for 25-30 guests
– Deliver sandwiches to onsite location (United Methodist on Mondays and Pole Line Baptist on Wednesdays)
– This is a great activity for individuals, bible studies, small groups, or volunteer organizations

A Minister of Hospitality must:
– Be at least 18-years old and assigned to a veteran Minister of Hospitality for training.
– Serve a minimum of at least six months in the organization (or one quarter for students).
– Enlist to work a regularly-scheduled task or activity.
– Complete and submit (via email or turned in hard copy at our ministry locations) the first two pages of the Minister of Hospitality Application and maintain this agreement form for you own records.

To volunteer with Grace in Action or for more information about volunteer opportunities, please contact our director Steve Smith at or by phone at 530-792-1053
