Ways to Volunteer

Our Territory is Expanding.

We’ve shared a lot recently, and we thank you for your emails, calls and interest. Thank you for your prayers and concern for our neighbors in recovery. If you missed it, check out this link here.

In the Metro Richmond area, there are over 1000 beds for people in recovery community organizations, and they are all full. There are many more people in recovery who are living independently, with friends and family. And more who are still in active addiction, incarcerated, or not getting the help they need. They live next to us, go to our churches and other houses of worship, and work beside us everyday. They may even be in our own homes.

The need is great and additional organizations are requesting our support and partnership, which requires more resources, volunteers and leadership. 

You are invited to join us in loving our neighbors in recovery.

For 3+ years, we have partnered with Make! Creative Studio located in St Giles Church for an evening of art and relationship building. We meet on Mondays at the studio. For more info, click here.

Stay informed on ALL the things going on with Into The Neighborhood and our partners. We don’t send out a lot, but when we do, we want you to know about it! And… we hope you will want to know, too!

Love God.

MaGnum Opus Dei

Thanks so much for attending this event! It was a blast!!!

Over the last 3 years, Into The Neighborhood and Make! Creative Studio have ministered to 100’s of women and men each year! Even during Covid, we found creative and safe ways to continue building relationships with the people living in residences that support their recovery from addictions to drugs, alcohol, the street life and more. Relationships may start in the studio, but continue in our everyday walk around lives as we continue to share our lives with and love one another outside of the studio.
