Since its founding, Mariners Inn has depended on the time and efforts of others in the community who shared our concern and commitment to those with a desire to enter into recovery. At the heart of our mission is service. Many of the volunteers that donate their time on a daily, weekly or monthly basis are central to our success as a non-profit organization. Whether preparing food in the kitchen, serving meals to guests, planting, weeding or harvesting in the Growing Dreams garden, working in the IT or maintenance departments, helping out around the office, helping to beautify the Cass Corridor, tutoring or mentoring our gentlemen, or assisting in the Art Therapy program, volunteers provide the extra pair of hands, the warm smile and caring attitude that make Mariners Inn what it is. The hours of service given by volunteers translates into a sense of love and dedication to our goal of compassionately serving every man that comes to our door. The generous gift of time given to Mariners Inn by volunteers insures that we are able to return ninety-two cents of every donated dollar to direct client services.
If you want to volunteer at Mariners Inn, we ask you to bring three important things with you: a willingness to work hard, an open and positive attitude, and a smile. We can promise you that you will work hard, have some fun, and learn a great deal about yourself and your fellow human beings.
