Volunteers are needed to help out in our donation Marketplace! Pathlight HOME has housed over 7,000 residents over the last 25+ years and we couldn't do it without our volunteers.
The Marketplace serves as a donation stocked store where residents can choose items at no cost to them. As a Marketplace Volunteer, you will assist staff in maintaining Pathlight HOME's Maxwell Terrace Marketplace. Maintenance includes stocking and sanitizing new donations, organizing existing donations, and other support functions.
The Marketplace is open to residents one week a month and volunteers will have the opportunity to work directly with residents during this week. We do not require that volunteers work directly with residents and volunteers under 18 will not be allowed to work directly with residents. Preferences will be discussed during orientation, which can be done virtually or in person.
Safety at Pathlight HOME is a priority and as so we have implemented safety measures. Including requiring mask-wearing by all staff, residents, and visitors, increased hand sanitizing and washing as well as social distancing.
Please note: all Pathlight HOME volunteer opportunities occur during our normal business hours Monday-Friday 9-5.
To change the lives of homeless and low-income individuals by providing affordable housing and economic opportunities.
Pathlight HOME changes the lives of homeless and low-income Floridians by providing affordable housing and economic opportunities. We are a non-profit organization providing over 600 formerly homeless individuals with permanent, supportive housing in Central Florida. Originally incorporated as Grand Avenue Economic Development Corp., we have helped more than 5,000 of our homeless neighbors through our "housing first" philosophy.
Pathlight HOME also operates two social enterprises, Pathlight Kitchen and Sobik’s Café. These enterprises create an opportunity for low-income community members to learn culinary skill sets, enabling them to overcome barriers to employment and earn higher wages.
