City Rescue Mission exists to transform the lives of the homeless and needy, serving them through the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.

Volunteering support is vital to the transforming work of the City Rescue Mission.

CRM offers a variety of volunteer opportunities including food service, general maintenance office/administrative service projects, professional services (i.e. medical, dental, job coaching, chapel), mentoring, tutoring/teaching, special events, thrift store, and donation center.

If you would like to volunteer in the food services section, you MUST wear closed-toed and closed-healed shoes and long pants (no capris or crops).  Shirts must have sleeves (no tank tops or spaghetti straps). Wear clothes you are comfortable in and don’t mind getting a little dirty!

If you have any other questions about getting involved with City Rescue Mission, please email volunteers@crmjax.org. If you are ready to get started, complete the volunteer application below.
