If you like to multi-task and want to experience the heart of the shelter, you will love this volunteer program! For two hours per week, front desk volunteers greet donors, volunteers, and residents. They also assist staff with phone calls and other needs.
This is also a great program, similar to our Family Shelter front desk, and lets you experience what happens at our Emergency Services office. This opportunity requires a conscientious volunteer with a level head as you work with a diverse population in a variety of situations. For two hours per week, front desk volunteers greet and assist clients, answer phone calls and assist with other needs.
The goal of this program is to help children, ages 5 - 12 years old, become interested in reading. Volunteers read a story with the children. Afterward, art and snack activities centered on the theme or characters in the story follow to reinforce the enjoyment of reading.
Play games, coordinate learning activities, facilitate arts and crafts, be a mentor to the children who are staying with us. Children are 4 - 12 years old.
Are you bilingual? Trilingual? Then this is the volunteer opportunity for you! For incoming clients and meetings with case management, you help with translation. No set hours and all languages needed!
