How can Convoy of Hope continue to touch millions each year? Only through the combined efforts of our faithful volunteers! If you are currently one of our volunteers, thank you for helping to deliver our promise of “Giving hope to the poor.” If you are a potential volunteer, there are many ways to get involved with Convoy of Hope!
Volunteers are the driving force behind each community outreach, from working a children’s game to sorting groceries. Participating in an outreach is often a life-changing experience for volunteers as they personally make a difference in the lives of our Honored Guests.

Springfield AreaHands of Hope will be on holiday break from Dec. 3 - Jan. 14th. We will return on Jan. 21st, 2014.
If you are in the Springfield, Mo. area, there are volunteer opportunities at Convoy of Hope’s headquarters. Join us each Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for Hands of Hope. This regular volunteer project gives local volunteers the opportunity to see and work with many of Convoy of Hope’s relief loads before they go out.
Volunteers of all ages and skill levels can help with sorting, packing, counting, labeling and inventory. This is a great opportunity for civic and church groups, and a fun way for students to fulfill their community service hours for school. Children under 12 should be accompanied by a guardian or responsible group leader.
No pre-registration is required for individuals, but we appreciate being able to plan for large groups in advance. If you have ten or more people coming to help please fill out this form to pre-register prior to your group’s arrival.
Following major domestic disasters, Convoy of Hope coordinates local church relationships in the execution of damage assessment, delivery of supplies, debris removal, and emotional spiritual care in impacted towns.
Following international disasters, Convoy of Hope works with our in-country relationships to assess the needs and utilize in-country volunteers.
During non-disaster times, churches are encouraged to be proactive in their communities, especially in disaster training and preparedness.
Our international teams share compassion with people around the world. These teams of volunteers from churches or other groups, work for 8-10 days helping those in need.
