Volunteer with no long-term commitment

Tacoma Rescue Mission


Looking for a way to give back to your community, but not able to make a long-term commitment?

The Rescue Mission serves approx. 500 meals each and every day to our neighbors in need. Such a big job requires a lot of hands to help prep and serve the food. No experience necessary and you can choose the shift that works best with your schedule, whether that be prepping Saturday lunch, Monday breakfast, Thursday dinner or anything in between. Kitchen shifts are 2.5 - 3 hours each and there is no commitment to serve more than one time (although we'd love it if you did!).

We have professional kitchen staff who are awesome at finding jobs for everyone.

Mission Statement

We help all people; including clients, volunteers, donors and staff, to become their best. We provide emergency services such as shelter and food to the homeless or hurting; offer self-sufficiency programs to help lift a person from poverty and break the chains of addiction; support prevention programs and share our Christian faith.


Without your gift of service, we are not able to accomplish the work we do. By volunteering, you are able to walk alongside those in need throughout our community and be a symbol of hope to the hurting individuals that are experiencing homelessness. Whether you are an individual, family or group, we would love to find a volunteer opportunity for you!
