Volunteer Opportunities

Matthew’s Ministry would not be possible without the help from our dedicated volunteers. Not only will you be a blessing to a Matthew’s Ministry family, but the joy you will receive from such an opportunity is priceless!

Throughout the summer, Matthew’s Ministry offers fun activities for participants with special needs of all ages. Typically lasting 2 hours in length, each session focuses on an age group – one involving play and recreation for kids; another with socialization and enrichment activities for teens and adults.

Volunteers are invited to join these groups to help with these fun and engaging activities!

For more information, contact Lily Caudill.
