Let’s get to work.

There are many ways to get involved in community service through YHHAP. We have volunteer opportunities for a wide variety of interests, skills, and commitment availability. Each engagement with YHHAP directly impacts men and women facing hunger or homelessness. Why not lend a hand?

The best way to become engaged in YHHAP and New Haven is to join a YHHAP Project. Projects range from food collection to case management, clothing distribution to tax preparation. Most do not require an application, and all are always excited to welcome new volunteers. See the projects page for ideas.

Looking for a one-time involvement? Some YHHAP projects  have regular one-time opportunities. (Serve a meal with YCK; write an Echo story; or go on an RRP run), but most single service needs arise week-to-week. To be informed about the latest service activity, sign up for the YHHAPPENINGS newsletter!
