Volunteers provide essential support for MIFA’s programs and clients. Join us through one of the following opportunities.
Meal delivery is a great opportunity for individuals, teams, congregations, and groups. You can deliver once or schedule a recurring route. Your deliveries provide vital social connections for our seniors, and this beloved volunteer opportunity will brighten your day too.
Deliveries take place Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday beginning at 9 a.m. Deliveries may include a combination of hot meals and shelf-stable or frozen boxes, so some moderate lifting is required.
Volunteer from anywhere! Check in on your neighbors as a MIphone Buddy. Volunteers provide a friendly phone call to areas seniors who are homebound or isolated. Sign up to receive a list of about 10 clients to call weekly. For some of our clients, MIFA staff and volunteers provide their only contact in a day; you can help a senior feel more secure and connected.
Advocate for the rights of thousands of residents living in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and residential care homes in Shelby, Fayette, Tipton, and Lauderdale counties.
Trained volunteers pay regular visits to these facilities, where they spend time with residents, monitor conditions, investigate complaints, and protect residents' rights.
You can help carry on the legacy of MIFA’s founders by volunteering as a MIFA representative with MICAH, the Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope.
MICAH is committed to uniting the community by convening and empowering a diverse coalition of community advocates who cultivate relationships that hold decision makers accountable for a more just and equitable Memphis. As a MICAH partner, MIFA extends its mission of serving the most vulnerable as advocates for change.
MIFA can use your unique skill set even if it’s not in the areas listed below. We need computer-savvy individuals for data entry, creative minds to assist with special projects, task-oriented people to pack shelf-stable meals, and more! These opportunities are available throughout the year—connect with our team about how you can get involved.
