Volunteer Application

We have several ways you or your group can help out! The summer of 2023 sure has been busy! Some volunteers with Superior, Water, Light & Power helped bring our garden vision to fruition by helping us get the beds together and everything planted. A few volunteers from Port Edwards UMC and a group from Duluth Service Learning helped us organize our donations, set up for our rummage sale and got a couple apartments ready for the next family to move in.

Harbor House Crisis Shelters thanks each and every one of our volunteers, without them we wouldn’t be able to continue serving the homeless.
