Serve at KARM
KARM is fueled by amazing people. Our staff and volunteers live out their calling and use their God-given gifts to serve the most vulnerable in our community. We are God-dependent, biblically-grounded, people-centered, church- and volunteer-rooted, excellence-minded people who are dedicated to the homeless, poor and needy for Christ’s sake.
Whether your desire is serving in a short-term capacity like preparing a meal or praying over beds OR diving deeper by serving with one of our eight ministry efforts, every volunteer opportunity begins with a KARM Encounter. A KARM Encounter gives you the opportunity to learn about what we do, why we do it and why volunteers are so vital to the work of Jesus in and outside our walls at Knox Area Rescue Ministries.

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:40
