VOLUNTEER

OPPORTUNITIES

VOLUNTEERS MAKE SUCH A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OUR RESIDENTS

Each touch provides an opportunity for the Mercy House “family” to show love and reflect the heart of our Heavenly Father. To volunteer with Mercy House is to help save a life.

Mercy House volunteers and staff must have a public profession of faith in Christ and be in active fellowship with a body of believers proclaiming Biblically sound Christian doctrine and in submission to their pastoral authority. Mercy House volunteers and staff must embrace the strong conviction of pro-life values, including the life of the unborn. All volunteers and staff must agree to a background check and sign the confidentiality agreement for Mercy House.

Whatever your talents are, there’s a place for you to serve at Mercy House!

Please contact us at volunteer@mercyhouse.org and we will be happy to get you started in the next steps to serving our precious moms and babies.
