The need is powerful. In 2017, more than 800 mothers and 1,600 children turned to us for a stable home environment.
Each year more than 700 volunteers commit more than 12,000 service hours to The Drake House.


Supporting families in your own community.

We are fortunate to have volunteers supplement the efforts of the professional staff.
Our staff and Board of Directors extend our sincerest thanks for all the hard work these volunteers do!

We are always looking for more people to join our family of volunteers!

Groups can complete special projects that maintain a stable trauma-informed living environment for a family experiencing homelessness.

office assistance, mentors, tutors, program speakers, youth group volunteers,
