Volunteer Opportunities


As a food and/or supply drive host, you will be helping to supply Grandma’s House of Hope with the food or items needed to serve the women and children of Orange County. Hosting a food drive is simple! Let us know you’re interested and we will provide you the information needed to get started. Please visit our Host a Food Drive page for more information on what is needed. To host a supply drive, please refer to our Donate Needed Items page for a list of our most needed items. You can also host a themed drive for items such as: back-to-school supplies, gift cards (for food, shoes, etc.), hygiene items (toothbrush, soap, etc.) or holiday items.



Food packing volunteers make it possible for Grandma’s House of Hope to provide food for children who are homeless or living in insecure housing. As a food packing volunteer, you will place non perishable food items into Nana’s Kidz bags to create meals for children. This event takes place on the first Saturday of each month. It is generally helpful if a few volunteers of the group are able to lift 35 lbs or more. Volunteer student groups (under the age of 18) must be accompanied by at least one adult chaperon. Volunteers should wear closed-toed shoes. Food packing is generally booked up to six months in advance. To find out what dates are available, email

Workshop hosts are skilled volunteers who contribute their expertise and passion to provide a variety of workshops for our programs. Are you a teacher, nutritionist, or yoga instructor? Are passionate about something else you’d like to share? You can help provide our clients with new resources, skills, insights or hobbies. To schedule a workshop, please e-mail



Our Adopt-A-Room volunteers help us bring warmth and comfort to the rooms of our transitional housing facilities. This opportunity involves purchasing new twin-bedding sets, inspirational wall art, curtains, and lamps, then delivering them to one of our houses and spending time decorating the room. It is a unique chance to visit one of our shelters and provide hands-on help to make our ladies feel at home. Please email for information on availability and items most needed.
