How To Help

Get involved with Central Iowa Shelter & Services by volunteering or donating. CISS volunteers support our mission by serving meals, running our clothing closet and food pantry, helping at the front desk, and much more!


If you don’t have time to volunteer, consider donating to CISS! Both financial and in-kind donations are vital in meeting the needs of our clients. View our Top Needs to see what items we need most.
