Get Involved

City on a Hill would not be able to function without our amazing volunteers. Our most critical asset, they help keep our building functioning to serve our resident ministries, and volunteers also directly serve clients at the Café and Health Clinic. Our mission calls for us to serve volunteers by helping them give back, feel connected and find value.
