COVID-19 Emergency Response

In response to COVID-19, My Brother's Keeper has temporarily suspended our Furniture Assistance Program. No pickups or deliveries until further notice. To do the most good for our neighbors in need, we are currently making 350+ emergency food deliveries per week to residents of Brockton, Easton, Fall River, New Bedford, Dartmouth, and Westport.

Volunteer

At My Brother’s Keeper, we view service as a privilege and a joy, not an obligation. When families trust us in their time of need, they give us a beautiful gift: the humble acceptance of our help.

More than 4,000 volunteers of all ages and backgrounds come to My Brother’s Keeper each year to experience this privilege of service. What our volunteers receive in return is life-changing: a profound appreciation for the blessings they have and a sense of fulfillment that comes from helping others in Christ’s name.

We also have a special emphasis on student-volunteering because today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. About 1,500 students from 100 schools volunteer at My Brother's Keeper each year.
