Meet A Local Need

Post a Local Need or Sign Up to Help Meet a Local Need

St. Joseph County is FILLED with caring people who want to help others, but need help knowing where to give to make an impact.

Local organizations are collaborating to launch a platform called Meet the Need (MTN) where organizations can easily and effectively communicate the current volunteer and material needs of our community and empower caring individuals, charities, churches and businesses to meet those needs.

We are looking to YOU as an individual or as a member of an organization, religious community, or business to be part of this initiative as we bring attention to the needs of our community and match volunteers wanting to help meet those needs. There are multiple ways in which YOU can be a part of this effort. YOU can:

  • post volunteer opportunities and/or material needs;
  • sign up to Meet a Need that is posted; and/or
  • sign up to receive weekly email alerts of current needs. Place “Add to Meet the Need” in the subject line of an email and send to

A complete list of current needs will be populated by MTN and posted at both and Both the SJC Human Services Commission and Hope United are taking on a coordinating role organizing the posting of needs and outreach to volunteers. Hope United of St. Joseph County is an organization dedicated to uniting local churches in service to the community.
