Volunteer with St. Patrick Center to help end homelessness

More than 4,600 St. Patrick Center volunteers each year donate 45,000 hours sorting donations, working fundraising events, performing administrative duties, serving lunch, making casseroles and salads, and more.

The first step to volunteering is to fill out our volunteer interest form.

Please note St. Patrick Center is not licensed to book court mandated hours at this time. For on site volunteering we require volunteers to be 14 with a chaperone, 16 to volunteer alone.

Volunteer from Home

Can’t volunteer during regular business hours? We have other opportunities to help in the evenings and on weekends. These include making salad kits, putting together hygiene kits, and more. For ways to volunteer from home click here.

Donations can be dropped off at St. Patrick Center’s donation center dock located at the back of our building on Hadley Street. Items are accepted Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. On weekends and holidays from 9am-11am, we only accept salad kits and casseroles. Please call 314-802-1976 before dropping off prepared food to ensure refrigeration space is available.

“St. Patrick Center is the best place to volunteer because you get to witness and share in the staff’s dedication to serve people in need,” said Steve Grass, a regular volunteer at the agency, taking on just about any task that needs to be completed.
