We welcome volunteer groups of 4-5 at a time to take part in projects supporting basic shelter operations, including supporting our Culinary Services team with day-to-day prep or working with the Housekeeping team to keep common spaces throughout the building clean.

Housekeeping shifts are available 9:00am-12:00pm on the first Friday of the month and have space for up to five people. Culinary Services shifts are available Monday through Thursday 1:30-4:00 pm. Volunteers must be 16 or older, and volunteers under 18 must have at least one chaperone per four volunteers under 18.
