Volunteer of the Month: March
Intown Lutheran Church
This month, Intown Lutheran Church had a workday at Nicholas House where their group picked up leaves in the yard, cleaned our kitchen walls, provided a delicious lunch and even brought St. Patrick’s Day decorations for our lobby area.
“Intown Lutheran moved to the neighborhood a year ago, and our members were looking for a local organization to provide financial and volunteers. The crucial support for homeless families that the Nicholas House provides stirred the hearts of our members. Spending time with the families reinforced why Intown Lutheran includes in our mission statement that Atlanta is a “A City Worth Loving.” We look forward to future opportunities to serve the families at Nicholas House.” – Josh Stephens.
Serve A Meal To Families!
Come to the table! Every night for more than 34 years, our residents have been sustained by a wonderful dinner provided, cooked and served by generous volunteers like you. Food is a wonderful way to care for others, have fun, and bond with your family, friends, faith group or co-workers in service. This is a perfect opportunity for groups between 4-12 people. Dinner is served from 6:30-7:30pm and you are welcome to use our commercial kitchen or bring it in already prepared. Contact us at 404-622-0793,ext.106 for more information or to schedule your dinner service.
Help Empower Kids!
Be an After School Helper. Our kids do well in school, and one of the biggest reasons why is the constant dose of help and encouragement they receive from our top-notch team of volunteers. You won’t find a more valuable way to spend your afternoon. Sharing knowledge and opportunity is quite possibly the most valuable gift you can give any child. You won’t regret it. Volunteers work with our elementary school kids every Monday through Friday from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Call our Youth Coordinator, Nicole Peyton, at (404) 622-0793, ext.102.
Come and play!
Share your talents and fun ideas with our kids during Nic’s Activity Hour every Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:30 pm! Watch a movie, play games, help with homework or do an arts and crafts project. The possibilities are endless and they all start with you. (Because you’re fun and kids adore you!)
Please note that all volunteers working directly with children are subject to an interview process and background check clearance.
Share Your Expertise!
Share your unique skill-set through our Adult Education program. We’re very sure you know how to do something valuable.

Adult Education classes are taught on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:30-8:30pm to a small group of eager parents.

Organize a large group project. In addition to our main opportunities, we can accommodate special groups or individuals wanting to lend us their passion.
