There are many ways you can get involved at St. Paul's. Volunteers help out at the Emergency Men's Shelter almost every night by preparing and serving dinner, they stock food boxes at the Food Pantry, and make sandwiches for the PHL outreach program. If you're interested in helping with a particular program, contact the program with questions.

Every year St. Paul's CDC sponsors numerous community events and we encourage you to join us! You can help us out, or you can encourage your friends and neighbors to come! These are often weekend events--neighborhood cleanups, food drives--and other service projects. Watch our events page for upcoming opportunities.

If you're interested in making a bigger commitment to helping St. Paul's, you should consider applying for an AmeriCorps position. AmeriCorps Members serve one-year terms and are essential to operating many of St. Paul's programs. For more information, visit our AmeriCorps page.

Please contact us with questions or submit your resume using our web-form.
