Without volunteers donating their time and energy to the Mission, we would not be able to offer the many expanded programs and services that allow our brothers and sisters to recover and experience our Heavenly Father’s unconditional love. Volunteering at one of the UGM Dallas shelters is a practical way to put feet to His love.

Opportunities to make a difference!


UGM Dallas welcomes groups from churches, schools, and businesses throughout the year. All group volunteer projects begin with a tour of the shelter and overview of our Mission.


Because we rely on volunteer workers to make all aspects of the Mission run smoothly, our goal is to provide opportunities that are best suited for most people.

Thanks for Volunteering

One of the ways to donate to UGM Dallas is through volunteer work. Here at the Mission, we are grateful for the support of our compassionate and reliable volunteers, many of whom are professionals utilizing their unique skills to serve clients individually and in groups. These individuals help us serve our disabled vets and the homeless men, women and children here in the Dallas community.
