OUR Center assists individuals and families in the St. Vrain Valley in need of food, clothing, rent & utility assistance, transportation, medical needs, budget & life skills, and many other resources to help people through short-term crises and to develop vital lifelong skills to enable self-sufficiency. We are grateful for the generous support we receive that makes it possible to serve those who come to us for assistance. The faith communities in and around Longmont started OUR Center back in 1986, and we are grateful for your continued dedication to the most vulnerable.
We have a critical need for volunteers to support our mission, particularly over the summer when many of our regular volunteers are on vacation. This is an important way to help the community. Each week we need 350 volunteers to provide the services we offer, and we have approximately 75 slots to fill, including:
- Community Market – sort and distribute groceries
- Community Café – help cook and serve meals, clean up
- Community Closet – sort and distribute clothing and toiletries
- Intake – brief client interview, issue food vouchers
- Gardening, clerical, and more!
OUR Center serves over 100 families per day, but we cannot do this without our precious volunteers! We are always looking for new volunteers with a variety of skills and a desire to make a difference.
When you volunteer at OUR Center, you not only make a positive impact in our community, you get to meet great people! Come join our team of dedicated and compassionate individuals who make a difference in people’s lives every day. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to serve on site.
OUR Mission: We help people move toward self-sufficiency by unifying community resources.
