How do I get started?

Please fill out our online form and include contact information, ways you think you would like to help, and best days or times of the week.

Who do I contact for more information about volunteering?

If your questions are not answered here, you can discuss volunteer opportunities with Manna House, by calling the volunteer coordinator at 410-889-3001 or emailing us.

Am I required to fill out an application?

Yes, that would be most helpful to us! After discussing volunteer interests and opportunities with a program Volunteer Coordinator you may be asked to fill out an application.


If you are participating in a special one-time group volunteer activity (United Way, school or faith-based group, etc) a formal application will not be required.

Are there special requirements to volunteer with Manna House?

If you have any limitations or requirements that would prevent you from standing for periods of time, please let us know. Otherwise the program Volunteer Coordinator will discuss specific requirements with you before a volunteer position is assigned.

Is there flexibility with time commitment on certain projects?

Each program and volunteer activity requires a different level of commitment. We will work with you to find a volunteer opportunity that can fit both your schedule and our program needs. Please indicate on the form, and we will find the perfect opportunity for you.

Can I volunteer with a group from my church or business?

Absolutely! Please fill out the group volunteer form and we will help coordinate a visit.

Can my children help at Manna House?

Yes! Children under 16 can come with their parents or must be accompanied by an adult. Minors between the ages of 16-18 may volunteer as long as they have parental permission.
