Volunteer Opportunities

Evening Outreach volunteers go out in the HOPE van on the coldest nights when people need blankets, hats and information about the Nighttime Navigation Center in order to survive the elements. This incredibly important work establishes supportive relationships and increases the chances that individuals will access the array of programs to help them move off the streets and into housing.
Two volunteers staff the van between 5:30pm – 7:30pm. Evening outreach volunteers attend training and work several shifts with veteran partners before hitting the streets on their own. Volunteers are supported by HOPE staff to communicate and trouble-shoot outreach activities.
Volunteers are required to be at least 18 years old and in good physical condition.
HOMELESS COORDINATED ENTRY
Shelter Volunteers assist clients and HOPE staff at our Nighttime Navigation Center. They serve meals, help clients secure their belongings for the night and perform other support tasks.
HOPE coordinates between two local church facilities, using their space to provide overnight sleeping to our clients experiencing homelessness. Nighttime navigation volunteers arrive at the church at 5:30pm to assist clients with check-in and stay until approximately 7:00pm to help serve meals, assist clients with personal belongings and clean-up. Volunteers are required to be at least 18 years old.
Soup Angels cook delicious and nutritious hot meals for people staying at the nighttime navigation services center. The meals are invaluable but they also are a simple reminder to our clients that someone cares about them. Soup Angels are asked to prepare 10 meals once per month. The Soup Angel program is appropriate for adults, children or as a group or family activity. Current volunteers in this program range from 3 to 75 years old.
Warehouse volunteers help HOPE staff sort and organize the donations we receive on a daily basis. Help in the warehouse is incredibly important as clients come to the warehouse to pick out clothing or hygiene basic needs items. Helping in the warehouse is appropriate for individuals or groups over the age of 13 years old.
Special Projects volunteers, who organize everything from holiday meal service to clothing donation or blanket-making drives. Contact us for more details.
