Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Pine Street Inn.

Please feel free to contact us directly with any questions: or 617.892.9184*

Thank you,

Pine Street Inn Volunteer Team 

*Please note: During the busy holiday months, we are not able to place individual volunteers looking for ongoing service opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering specifically for our Thanksgiving or Christmas events, please call our office to be added to our holiday wait-list.


becoming a Volunteer involves three simple steps:

STEP 1: initial telephone meeting

Schedule a time for a meeting via telephone with us by calling 617.892.9184. 
Chatting via telephone will give you a chance to learn more about volunteer opportunities with us, and whether we are the right fit for you, your group, etc. Once this step is complete, we will invite you to fill out a Volunteer Application.



Download and print a Volunteer Application and CORI Form.*
*Note: Please remember to include a photocopy of a state-issued photo ID with your CORI Form.


Send your forms via email, or regular mail to:

Pine Street Inn | Volunteer Programs

444 Harrison Avenue | Boston, MA 02118


During the orientation, prospective volunteers will learn more about Pine Street, take a tour and review volunteer policies and opportunities. Once your Application and CORI have been processed, we will reach out to you about upcoming orientation dates.


Individual Service Opportunities



Help Pine Street serve breakfast any day of the week. Breakfast servers are needed from 6 to 7 a.m. at our emergency shelter in Boston's South End. 



Do you live or work near Pine Street? Are you available in the evenings? If so, you may want to consider becoming a fill-in meal server. Occasionally, Pine Street needs last-minute help for dinner service. When this situation arises, we turn to our fill-in volunteers for extra support. Because not every fill-in volunteer is able to offer help at all times, we rely on fill-in servers to ensure that we always have enough volunteers to help.



The health clinic at Pine Street is in need of friendly and outgoing volunteers to greet guests in our Men's Clinic. Shifts are available in the morning and evening Monday-Friday.



Do you have a special skill or training that may benefit the needs of our guests? Let us know!
