Volunteer at Promise Place!
Volunteering is essential to community life. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make a real difference in the lives of those around you. Without it, our work would be impossible, and we would be unable to provide services to those who need them. Sign up to volunteer one day a week, once a month, or part-time. We appreciate any time you can give. Volunteer applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you are interested, please fill out the interest form or contact the main office (252.636.3381). After we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule interview, training, and volunteer orientations. Due to the serious nature of our work, background checks may be required.
