Volunteer

It takes so little but it means so much…

Every year, more than 600 volunteers provide around 5,000 hours of on-site service at Bethlehem Haven. But, even that is not enough. Can you spare an hour a week, or a month, or even just twice a year? It may not seem like much, but it can mean the world to the individuals at Bethlehem Haven.

To help, you can:

  • Prepare and/or serve meals
  • Coordinate activities for shelter residents like bingo, crafts, games, or manicure nights
  • Assist with general office work
  • Join our Special Events Committee
  • Organize a fundraiser, like a bake sale or car wash (a great way for students to help!)
  • Share with us another skill or talent–if you have an idea for a way that you can make a difference, give us a call

In-kind gifts comprise a substantial percentage of Bethlehem Haven’s annual budget and make it possible to provide cost-effective services to residents.
Due to our limited storage space, we can only accept specific items. Thank you.

Donation List

Bethlehem Haven’s greatest ongoing need is meal donations. It’s a great way for a group to get involved and interact with the individuals at the Haven. We also accept drop-off meals (or bag lunches) if you cannot find a time for your group to serve and meet the residents. Please contact Amber Jackson at ajackson@bethlehemhaven.org or 412-391-1348 x224 to schedule a meal donation.

  • Miryam’s provides lunch and dinner for approximately 50 individuals.
  • Emergency shelter provides dinner for 30 individuals during the week. Both lunch and dinner is provided on the weekends for 30 individuals.

*Each location is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
