Let’s make a difference together!

Join us in the work of bringing hope and future to Tulsans in need! Lives are being changed at the Mission, and we couldn’t do without the volunteers who partner with us every day. You have been gifted in ways that we need!

Last year, volunteers gave over 30,000 hours of their time and talents. That’s the equivalent of nearly 15 full-time jobs–a huge help and savings to the Mission! Further inquiries may be directed to the volunteer coordinator at volunteer@john316mission.org or by calling 918.574.8620.
