NOTE: We will not be accepting new volunteers until September 17, 2019 due to reduced staff and hours over the summer. Please check back with us in September if you are interested in volunteer. Thanks for thinking of us!
Romero House relies on the generosity of our many volunteers. They give their time, energy and skills to help welcome refugees.
What can I do?
