St. Anthony’s operates entirely on Providence – we have no city funding and are completely dependent on generous donors like you! Here are some ways you can volunteer your time, talent, or treasure to join the mission:


A great opportunity to directly serve the shelter men and see our mission up-close. Groups of 5 or less can come assist our kitchen staff in serving or preparing dinner any night of the week. Or, if you’re connected to a restaurant, you can choose to cater a meal!

Email stanthonysfooddudes@gmail.com to ask about availability.


Providing a perfectly clean, orderly, well-functioning shelter does more than just make a man feel at home – it restores his dignity. As such, we’re constantly working to renovate and maintain our facility.

If you have skills in plumbing, carpentry, electrical work, or any other maintenance trade, call or email us to see if and when you can use your talents to serve us.


To give monetarily, please click on the “Donate” tab above. To give food, clothing, cleaning supplies or other items that you think would help the mission, please call ahead to ask about our needs and set to up a time to drop them off.
