Ways to Make a Difference

Volunteers are the heart of so many of KRM’s outreach programs … and we’d love to have you join us! Whether you help serve a meal, prepare items for Red Ribbon Christmas Boxes, or assist with office tasks, they are ALL important to spreading help and hope in our community. Learn more about upcoming events here, or read the sections below.


If you are interested in volunteering please download our Volunteer Application PDF or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (765) 456-3838. Soon after we receive your application, we will schedule a time to meet you and give you a tour of the Mission.
You may spend as little as two hours serving a meal or you could spend an entire day in any area such as Open Arms, our shelter for homeless women and children, or in the Red Ribbon Christmas event. We will do our best to match you with an area of interest and the time you are available. Some may want to volunteer weekly or monthly or only for special events.
To serve meals, you must be at least 15 years old if you come without a parent or adult sponsor. Other projects are available for children under 15 if there is adequate adult supervision. Call the Volunteer Coordinator at (765) 456-3838 for suggestions.

Every holiday brings some measure of sadness to those who have lost their home and family. Pray that the men and women in our shelters will turn to Jesus Christ, who loves them intensely, died to pay the price for their sins, rose from the grave offering forgiveness, hope and a new life in Him.
