Group Accommodations

While we greatly appreciate large groups willing to offer their time to volunteer, we can only accommodate 5 volunteers per shift.  Please note, time slots fill up quickly.  For more information on volunteering at Amos House, email  volunteer@amoshouse.com, or by phone: 401-272-0220 x212.


Kitchen volunteers assist in preparing and serving meals to Amos House guests.  Occasional assistance is needed in cleaning the kitchen as well. 


We ask that volunteers wear long pants, closed toed shoes and/or sneakers. A hair net is necessary and can be provided, or a cap can be worn if preferred.


Soup kitchen volunteers must be at least 14 years of age and have the ability to lift 25 pounds.  


If you are scheduled to volunteer with us for the first time, please fill out this intake FORM prior to your scheduled volunteer day.
