3 ways to volunteer this year
There is just something so special about a fresh start, don’t you agree?
It’s the time of year a lot of people set resolutions and goals for a better year! We’ve all seen some people get creative like, learn to play a new instrument. While others get ambitious like remodeling their home. And some keep it simple like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
A common New Year’s resolution, and our personal favorite, is to start volunteering! If that’s YOU, we’d love for you to consider volunteering with Stand in the Gap Ministries. Our three programs could use a volunteer just like YOU.
- Life Launch: support & mentor young adults aging out of foster care
- Women in Transition: support & mentor formerly incarcerated women
- Widows: equip & empower local churches to support & love widows in their community
Our programs target populations closest to God’s heart – orphans, widows, and prisoners – by addressing their unique life situations.
We believe people experience healing in their relationship with God and with each other through support. If you are ready to stand in the gap with us this year, keep reading!

There are gaps in our society: places where families and communities have failed. As God’s people, there is only one response to the gap. STAND IN IT.
Happy New Year, friends! We hope to see a few of you around as volunteers this year.
