With the growing needs of our military families, as well as our veterans, we are always in need of volunteers at Military Missions, Inc. We are busy year round and we often need to coordinate a lot of volunteers for events and support tasks.
We have a variety of positions available and we would love to have you join our team. All positions are considered “volunteer” positions. While we can’t pay you monetarily, we can promise you will receive a blessing through serving along with all of us at Military Missions. If you are interested in joining or leading a team, please complete our volunteer info form. If you have more questions, feel free to call or text us at 859-221-9477.

TEAM OUTREACH – We need people to help us reach out and connect with our community… to get the word out about Military Missions and get others involved in supporting our programs.
