First Step


Second Step

Do you want to volunteer with guests or without interacting with the guests?

Examples of volunteering WITH guest interaction:

•   Making and bringing a portion of a meal and staying to enjoy the meal with the guests and other volunteers.

YES, I WANT TO INTERACT WITH GUESTS 

1) Watch the training video online (56 minutes).

2) Fill out and sign the Training/Confidentiality Agreement.

3) Once you have chosen the area in which you would like to volunteer, let the volunteer coordinators know and we will direct you to the coordinator of that area. For meals, you may reach out directly to the meal captain for the meal in which you would like to participate.  The coordinator or meal captain will let you know the details for our next host week.  You can also find most pertinent information on the volunteer portal of our website.

Examples of volunteering WITHOUT guest interaction:

•   Making and dropping off a portion of a meal.

•   Laundry

•   Weekly downtown grocery shopper

•   Bagged lunch grocery shopper

•   Cleaning help

•   Purchasing supplies from time to time

NO, PREFER  BEHIND THE SCENES
