I Want to Help

Amy, a scientist, found herself unemployed and came to volunteer at UMD to help out during a difficult transition period. Not only did she offer much to the program, but the experiences of looking at life through new lenses was a gift to her that will last a lifetime. UMD offers a wide variety of opportunities to help those in need.

Volunteers are needed with a variety of skills and at various times. As you serve, you will meet people that enrich your life as well. For more information on these opportunities visit our Get Involved page.

Financial donations to UMD are always a great way for you to help provide food, clothing, shelter and supportive services to neighbors in need. Donate now or to learn more visit our Donations page.

In-kind donations are regularly used to benefit those in the Shelter, Café and Food Pantry and Clothing closet. 

Advocating for change to end homelessness is critical. Get involved with volunteers from UMD and the wider community by contacting our partners through the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness.
