The Seattle Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS) unit is supported by two local Mennonite congregations, Seattle Mennonite Church and Evergreen Mennonite Church.
Volunteers live in a large house located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. MVS volunteers agree to serve at least one year with a non-profit organization in social service jobs. They live in community; sharing meals and a commitment to a lifestyle of simpler living.
Here are some of the organizations that MVS volunteers have served with:
- Ballard Food Bank
- University District Food Bank
- Frederic Ozanam House
- Rainier Health and Fitness
