Volunteer Opportunities


Prepare Meals

If you, your family or even your social group would like to volunteer with kitchen help, please call 931-528-5819. Opportunities include: you provide, prepare and serve a meal; prepare food provided by the Mission and serve our guests. For more information, please call and thank you for your interest.

Please Note: The Cookeville Rescue Mission requires a criminal background check (CBC) for volunteers prior to serving as a volunteer in certain aspects of the programs. The policy of CBC’s applies to regular volunteers who work with the Family Lodge, the Men’s Dormitory, and the Men’s Program Dorm on a regular basis, and/or are in contact with the children residing in or visiting the Cookeville Rescue Mission. New employees and interns are subject to a CBC as part of the “New Hire Checklist” process. The Cookeville Rescue Mission Executive Director will approve all volunteer applications and Criminal Background Checks.
* A volunteer application is not necessary to serve meals at events such as Community Fellowship Meal. Please see the Community Fellowship Meal page for more information.
