Volunteer We need you.

Are you interested?

A big part of our mission at The Covering House is connecting everyday people to an extraordinary cause.  The Covering House seeks to provide refuge and restoration for girls who have experienced sexual exploitation or sexual trafficking. Although slavery was abolished nearly 150 years ago, it is still alive and thriving today, some say more than ever before. By providing refuge for young survivors, The Covering House is fighting for a world without slavery. But we cannot do it alone.

How To Apply?

We at The Covering House work with a sensitive demographic. To ensure the confidentiality and safety of both our clients and volunteers, we require ALL volunteers to complete the following materials, in addition to the online Volunteer Application. Once the documents are completed please return to The Covering House for submission:

You can either mail your application to our P.O. Box 12206, St. Louis, MO 63157, email it to volunteer@thecoveringhouse.org, or bring it to orientation.

Meet Your Volunteer Coordinator


In 2013, Jessica collaborated as composer and musician for “Cover: a play about trafficking” at Missouri Baptist University. This drama brought to the stage the experience of the staff of the Covering House. Through this experience Jessica was inspired to join Covering House as a Youth Development Specialist, working with the girls in our long-term therapeutic home. At the beginning of 2016 Jessica took the role of Administrative Assistant. Jessica is honored and enjoys the opportunity to be your volunteer coordinator.
