Mission Volunteer 10-Month Live-In Opportunity in Detroit

Posted on:
Start: Aug 24, 2022 / End: Jun 30, 2023 / Location: Detroit, Michigan

We are seeking compassionate adults who believe in the fundamental dignity of each person to join us for a 10-month volunteer mission at our Deo Gratias Ministry in Detroit, MI. This pilot program will run from September 2022 to June 2023.


Deo Gratias Café: Welcome and serve our neighbors with a ministry of presence. Learn about their families, their own history and listen for ways to identify needs that we can help serve.

Food Pantry: Stock shelves, pick up donations, check in guests and help them make food selections while learning a little more about their lives and needs.

Literacy Program: Work one-on-one with adults or children to assess and help build their reading skills. Develop relationships with our neighbors as you work with a particular adult or child throughout the program.

Community Garden: Plough, dig, weed, plant, harvest and share vegetables and herbs to bring healthy and flavorful foods to the neighborhood.

Art Program: Bring your inner artist to help with a variety of art classes including stained-glass, rock painting, canvas painting, and making mosaics to bring beauty and pride to our guest’s homes and neighborhood.

Programs are currently offered for limited times throughout the week — volunteers will help us expand programming.
