Please contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator at (757) 833-5980 if you can assist in any of the following areas:

Dinner Program
Menchville House welcomes groups to prepare and serve dinner for our residents through our Dinner Program.  This is a wonderful serving opportunity to make our residents feel special!

Volunteering through our Dinner Program requires individuals or groups to provide a prepared meal for up to 45 people (16 adults and 30 children), and additional food for the number of volunteers in your group coming serve. During the weeknights, volunteers usually arrive at 5:00pm to set up dinner and dinner is served from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm.  Dinner should consist of a hot, well balanced meal. If you have a group interested in being a part of the Dinner Program or to find out more about this great volunteer activity, please call (757) 833-5980 ext 201 or email

Volunteers are always needed to tutor our children in reading and other subjects. These sessions can be designed to work with one resident or with a group. The sessions are conducted after school. We also welcome individuals who can conduct workshops for our moms on an array of topics from credit repair to life skills, etc. To find out more about this great volunteer activity, email, or call (757) 833-5980 Ext 201.

Field Trips
The most enjoyable and exciting activities that Menchville House provides is field trips to many different social, community, and educational events. Activities such as baseball games, bowling, skating, and museums allow our children and parents to experience firsthand the excitement of these events. We invite our supporters to sponsor field trips by either monetary donations to cover the cost of the field trip, donating passes to functions or to help with transportation and chaperoning children during the trips.
