Ways to Volunteer

Provide Meals

Volunteers are needed to provide lunch and supper on the weekends, and occasionally during the week. Individuals drop off prepared meals from home, or restaurants. Volunteers can pick one meal a month or be on a rotating schedule with another volunteer.

Be a Safe Place Volunteer

Project Safe Place is a national program that gives teenagers in trouble a place to go for help. Stores and other public locations in the community display the Safe Place sign on their premises. When a teenager comes to a Safe Place location, their employee calls the Shelter. The Shelter sends a trained volunteer to the site to assist the youth. The volunteer then transports the youth to the Shelter or calls the parents. Volunteers can be anyone with a heart to help teens in crisis. Volunteers attend training on Safe Place and crisis intervention procedures. Although this is an “on call” opportunity, volunteers are not expected to stay at home and wait by the phone. If a volunteer is not available to respond when called, another will be called. Volunteers must have a valid drivers license, auto insurance, pass a criminal background check and attend training provided by the Shelter.

Be An Activity Assistant

Volunteers are needed often to assist staff and residents with daily activities. Volunteers who are interested must complete an application, interview, criminal background check and attend training provided by the Shelter.

Be A Community Advocate

Help us extended our reach throughout the community. Serve as an educator at community health fairs and special events by giving out information about the Shelter and tell others about the many services we provide.

Offer Administrative Support

If you’re more of a behind-the-scenes person, we can always use help answering calls, organizing supplies, assembling packets, writing thank you notes, preparing for special events and more.

Help Fundraise

Opportunities abound for you to help with ongoing resource development needs here at the Shelter. You can be a community campaign volunteer, help cultivate prospective donors, champion a new event to benefit the Shelter, help with grant writing and more.

Volunteer for a Work Day

Volunteer groups are frequently needed and used at the Shelter to complete various projects to not only maintain the facilities across campus but continue to make the Shelter a warm, inviting facility for our residents. Volunteer projects may consist of cleaning, renovations and improvements, landscaping, painting, and more. We’ll customize the project to the size of your group and make sure everyone has a great volunteer experience.
