Help fill ongoing needs at Safe Haven
Hospitality/ Dinner Team: Do you understand the importance of a family meal? So do we. Our volunteers prepare meals 365 days a year for up to 40 residents at a time. Meals can be
prepared at home and brought in, or prepared in our industrial kitchen. We ask that they include an entrée, two vegetable dishes, dessert and drinks (milk for children and tea / juice / soda for adults). Residents dine from 6-7 p.m. (Volunteers are contacted at least 48 hours in advance to confirm the number of residents that will be present for dinner.)
Administrative: Two daily administrative shifts are filled by volunteers at the 3rd Avenue shelter: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Duties include answering the phones and greeting visitors.
Groups: We will post desired projects from time to time, or check in with us on our current needs. Don’t hesitate to share a project idea. (We also love to work with Scouts! We can work with Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to find an appropriate and needed project.)
Events: We always need volunteers to help us plan and carry off our signature events. Let us know if you would like to help with an event!
Children’s Program Volunteer: Volunteer with our children’s program. (Our Extensive Volunteer Training session is mandatory for this volunteer opportunity or
provide fun activities and childcare while parents attend Safe Haven classes (usually on weekdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m.). Please visit our Volunteer Training page to sign up for the next training.)
