Volunteers bring essential services to the Allentown Rescue Mission. Each year, thousands of people offer their time, talent, and goodness of heart to outreach projects, and to help make a difference in the lives of the hurting and the homeless. Opportunities are on-going, year-round, and constantly changing. At the Allentown Rescue Mission, there is a place for everyone with time to give.
