Pivotal Point Transitional Housing relies heavily on the gift of time from volunteers. There are several ways to get involved and make a difference in the lives of local families:
Whether you are available to volunteer at the Pantry and stock shelves, or you are able to donate items for the Pantry, your gifts of time and donations are appreciated at Pivotal Point Transitional Housing.
Pantry donations can be taken to the Thrift Shoppe any time during business hours (10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday) or contact Michele Euler to set up a time to deliver to the apartments (3000 Parkway A).
A few of the items that are particularly helpful to families in transition include:
Consider becoming a volunteer at our Thrift Shoppe. From showcasing seasonal displays at Christmas and Easter to stocking shelves with donated items, there’s plenty for helping hands to do. The Thrift Shoppe also welcomes your donations of gently used clothing, furniture, household items, books and toys.

When you volunteer as an apartment advocate at Pivotal Point Transitional Housing, you make a home out of the residence for a family placed under your care. An apartment advocate is a one-year commitment, in which you clean and furnish the apartment, then care for the family that moves into it, celebrating birthdays and holidays with them and then celebrating their graduation from the program.
Volunteers are needed to share their skills or hobbies with Pivotal Point Transitional Housing residents. Residents of Pivotal Point Transitional Housing are required to attend a life skills class each week, provided it does not conflict with their work schedule. These classes generally cover topics such as nutrition, budgeting and ways to save money, cooking, work skills and hobbies such as yoga and art. Each class is about one hour in length.
There is also is a need for volunteers in Apartment Living to come alongside residents for prayer, encouragement, support and care. You may offer guidance to a resident beginning a weekly budget or assist them in preparing for a job interview. In any given week, there’s a need for residents to receive a kind word or some encouragement.
