Want to volunteer? Eden Village has a variety of ways that you can get involved in the community.
Eden Village of Springfield depends upon its volunteers to keep things functioning and running smoothly. When our villages are full of residents, they will be encouraged by your generosity and in return will be working by your side, giving them a sense of ownership and accomplishment and in return teach them to give unto others as you have done. WE believe in the importance of dignified relationship in the healing of the impoverished.
Please call or email us to schedule your group’s volunteer workday or if you’re willing to give your time to build this community.
Join A Home Team
Relationship and community are a key part of the solution to homelessness. We believe that we should know the name and story of the person we’re trying to help. Each resident of Eden Village of Springfield has a supportive Home Team consistent of 4-6 people from the surrounding Springfield, MO area that will promise to meet monthly and ‘do life’ with that resident. There is a short educational program required to clearly explain the process, which includes no material gifts, rather just a supportive relationship.
Home teams are a long-term volunteer opportunity that allow you to make a personal connection with an Eden Village resident.
Each resident is assigned a home team upon move in that will meet once a month during their first year living at Eden Village.
Transitioning from life on the streets to life in a home is not easy. The home team offers support and encouragement during this time.
