Being a volunteer is a very personally rewarding experience. It meets the different preferences and motivations of almost everyone, when volunteers are matched appropriately to opportunities. Giving back to the community and giving others hope is a gift that is priceless and long-lasting. Volunteering is also an opportunity to share and teach the skills you already have, to learn new skills, add experience to a resume, and fulfill scholarship or internship requirements. For some volunteers, it's a way to stay active and busy, meet lots of new people, and just have great fun!
Who Can Volunteer?
Just about anyone. And yes, men are welcome! We also need your voice in the community. Teens are also welcome with appropriate supervision. Grandmothers, grandfathers, families, corporate and civic organizations, church groups, boy/girl scouts--all are welcome. Diversity is the key--we also need volunteers who are culturally diverse and bi-lingual in English and any other language.
How many hours would I have to contribute or commit to volunteering?
You tell us when you are available and we will work with you to create a schedule. Any amount of your precious time is precious to us, as well! Our shelter is open 24/7, 365 days a year.
