Volunteer at Doors of Hope – Murfreesboro Needs You!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Doors of Hope Volunteer !

Website-Volunteers-3To help us find you a place where you can best contribute your time and talents we would appreciate if you would download our volunteer application at this link and fill it out.  You can bring it with you to the office or mail it to us.  Please note if your interest is becoming a counselor, where you will be in direct contact with our clients, we require your authorization to submit a standard law enforcement background check which can be downloaded at this link.  By including a check for the $30 background check fee, your generous donation lowers our administrative costs and enables us to provide better service to our clients.
What will you do when you volunteer at Doors of Hope?  There are so areas where we can use your help.  We always have need for people with computer skills to take care of our office computers.  We need volunteers to work on our website, to prepare newsletters, and for many other administrative tasks.    Many times our newly released clients will need transportation to medical appoints.  They often need help finding affordable housing, coaching on life skills, and preparation preparing for job interviews.  We need people to call employers and look for employment opportunities for our clients.  Somewhere in our busy organization we have a place for your talents.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

We are always looking for women to participate in our inmate Godmother Program.

Our volunteer Godmothers simply write to an inmate each month to encourage and support them as they prepare to transition back to a normal life.  This is an easy and convenient way to start out with Doors of Hope and is deeply appreciated by our clients.  If you or someone you know would be interested in this exciting and rewarding way to help our clients we encourage you to fill out a volunteer application. No background check is required for the Godmother Program.

 Woman are eligible to become a God Mother if: 
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Completes the application that can be downloaded above on this page or picked up during training.
  • Is recommended by 2 verifiable character references or by a current Godmother or church Pastor
The Doors of Hope Godmother Program encourages inmates by monthly letters.
