NECHV welcomes corporate groups, school and alumni organizations, faith-based groups, civic organizations, and more for volunteer support. All opportunities are offered in our downtown Boston location at 17 Court Street.
If you are interested in reserving an opportunity for your group or organization, please check out the list of opportunities and get in touch with us by using the contact information below.
Each year over 1,400 volunteers assist Veterans at NECHV by serving meals at the Center. Meal service is an ideal volunteer outing for companies or clubs. Volunteer teams of up to 5-7 individuals serve meals behind the line. This is a great way to support our kitchen staff and get to directly interact with Veteran residents. Many groups have regularly scheduled meal service dates each month.
Below are the times for each meal:
- Lunch: 11:30am – 12:45pm
- Dinner: 4:30pm – 5:45pm
- Breakfast: 7:30am – 9:30am
- Dinner: 4:00pm – 5:00pm
Please note that our meal service calendar books up far in-advance, so please plan ahead!
Through this program, a breakfast, lunch or dinner meal can be underwritten, served and/or sponsored.
Many businesses, civic groups and organizations participate in the sponsored meal program and provide a special menu with a theme. The Veterans living at our 17 Court Street center enjoy the variety and great food selections offered when a meal is sponsored. It’s also a great way for families to become involved providing service to the Center and is one of our most beneficial programs. Learn more about NECHV’s Sponsored Meal Program. >>
Learn and Serve
Interested in having your organization gain a deeper understanding of the issues of Veteran homelessness, poverty, and housing issues? This opportunity allows an NECHV representative to speak directly to your group about these specific issues and answer any questions regarding Veterans facing or at-risk of homelessness. Our staff is happy to work with you to identify the specific areas that will be covered to ensure that your group is engaged and interested. Staff will also work to identify a suitable service opportunity that will directly benefit the Veterans at NECHV and engage your organization’s members in meaningful service.
