Volunteer With Us
We rely heavily on volunteers from local churches and the community. Last season we had over 350 volunteers who worked over 4,000 hours! Volunteers are the glue that holds us together. There are many different ways that you can volunteer and several levels of commitment!
Meals: Daily 5:45pm-7:30pm
We love people through food! You can sign up to prepare food and bring it to the shelter, sign up just to serve the meal, or do both. We serve up to 40 guests every evening.
Intake: 1-2 times per week from 5:45pm-6:30 pm. Assist staff with bag checks and welcoming guests in for the night. This position receives special training on how to conduct bag searches.
Host: 1 evening a week from 6pm-10pm. If you are a people person and are reliable and dedicated, this position could be for you. The host extends hospitality each night by talking with guests and volunteers, assisting guests with needs, engaging in activities like games, crafts, movie nights, and playing with the kids. This position receives special training.
Drop In Center Host: Assist at the drop in center in the afternoons from 12-3. Greet people at the door, offer hospitality and coffee, assist with filling out applications, job searches etc. We ask that you commit to once a week for this position.
