Volunteer

Holy Fools Inc is blessed with more than 120 active volunteers who help with our activities and programs each and every week. Without the commitment of our volunteers, we simply could not make the same effective difference in our community.

Our wonderful team of volunteers come from all walks of life, and are the lifeblood of our activities – dedicating their time and skills – making a difference in our community to those we serve – the homeless and those at-risk. We are very grateful for their love and support.
If you are interested in joining our team or would like to learn more about our volunteering opportunities, please fill in the form below and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you shortly to discuss the next steps. Thank you!

You will need to apply for a Working with Children’s Check.
