Who Can Serve?
Anyone! We’d love for you to take a first step into serving within our community whether you’re serving with your small group, your family, or individually. Please contact us if you have questions.
To connect people to service opportunities, Journey has formed ongoing relationships with nonprofits around our community. Our partner organizations focus on the homeless or near-homeless, at-risk children and the food-insecure population in our area. Let us introduce you to them:
Chesterfield Food Bank
The Chesterfield Food Bank is committed to being a hand up to individuals and families that need help but have fallen through the cracks of our governmental social services programs and our community. CFB provides free food to meet the individual’s immediate need while assessing the root issues that are causing the need to exist.
When you volunteer with the Chesterfield Food Bank, you may be sorting or bagging food items, visiting with clients and assisting them with food selection, and assisting them to their car with their groceries. To sign up as an individual, a family or as a small group to serve, please use the Sign-Up Genius link here.
Mercy Mall is a FREE boutique where families and individuals can shop for clothing, shoes, housewares and baby items. They give away a few food and toiletry items to each family during their appointment. They are not a monthly or regular “thrift store” experience, but rather a place for those in crisis situations to get their immediate needs met.
You can sign up to volunteer to organize items, clean the facility, make repairs, or work in the boutique. You can also accept donates (items or financial).
Grace Home MinistriesWebsite
Grace Home Ministries (GHM) is a non-profit organization based in Central Virginia focused on supporting teen mothers through parenthood.
Volunteers can assist with childcare while the mothers attend workshops or sit with mentor. Volunteers can also help with fundraising events or serve on the Grace Project Mentoring Program.
Chesterfield County Schools
We are honored to have been invited into partnership with 3 schools in the CCPS system (Jacobs Rd ES, Crenshaw ES, and Providence ES) and are happy to assist them as they serve families and children throughout our county.
There are many ways that Journey provides support for CCPS, including food drives, school supply drives, Little Library book distribution site, providing homework supply boxes, gifts for teacher appreciation, and assisting with special events.
Throughout the year, we will announce special opportunities to volunteer or contribute to partner with Chesterfield County Public Schools.
