DINNER (5 volunteers) — You’ll be cooking and serving dinner, talking with guests, and perhaps picking up food from one of the many places that donate to us.

EVENING (4 volunteers) — You’ll be helping to serve food and clean the kitchen after dinner. This is also a relaxed time to visit with guests as they prepare for bed.

OVERNIGHT (4 volunteers) — Overnight shifts are the longest but most rewarding. You will find yourself a jack-of-all-trades, with jobs including cooking food, doing laundry, and supervising the shelter space. You’ll get to hang out with other volunteers and night-owl guests! Don’t worry: we take turns sleeping! We divide the night into three sub-shifts, and you will be asleep for two of the three. There is a staff room with several beds, so you’ll be able to sleep 5-6 hours over the course of the night.

BREAKFAST (6 volunteers) — Come in bright and early to greet our guests! You’ll be making breakfast and helping to clean the shelter after all the guests leave at 8:00 am on weekdays or 9:00 am on weekends.
