ROOTS In-Shelter Morning+ Volunteer

ROOTS is a young adult emergency shelter that is almost exclusively volunteer run. We are open 365 days a year, with up to 45 guests per night between the ages of 18-25. Volunteers are needed to help with operational tasks but most importantly volunteers will provide social support to the folks who stay here and build meaningful relationships. You must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer with us. In-shelter Morning Shift (5:00am-8:30am, any day of the week): Morning+ Volunteers will be in shelter each day from 5am-8:30am. Between 5am and 7am, Morning+ volunteers will do a walkaround of the shelter space every 10 minutes to monitor guest safety needs. During this time, Morning+ Volunteers will also sign guests in and out of restrooms and assist with guest laundry. From 7am-8:30am the Morning+ role will be identical to that of Morning Volunteer. Morning+ Volunteers will have staff support during each shift and will never be the only ones awake monitoring the shelter floor. However, this role is crucial in expanding our overnight coverage so that we can best support our guests throughout their entire time in shelter. We require all volunteers and staff to wear gloves and face masks throughout the duration of their shift. Volunteers are free to bring in their own face masks or other PPE, and we can provide gloves and disposable face masks on-site. The wellbeing of our volunteers is of the utmost importance, and we only ask you to commit to volunteering if you are safely able to do so. Upon arriving to each shift your Volunteer Supervisor or other staff will ask you questions listed on the ROOTS COVID-19 screening guide and will take your temperature. Staff and guests are screened in the same way upon entering the space. We appreciate your understanding in this process. Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather, have had recent contact with anyone demonstrating COVID-19 symptoms, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms within the last 14 days. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions are discouraged from pursuing our in-shelter Evening and Morning volunteer roles at this time. Our Sanitation role, which maintains a greater level of social distancing, is still available to everyone. If you can help during this time and are healthy enough to do so, fill out an application on our website at http://www.rootsinfo.org/get-involved/volunteer/volunteer-application/ for your own welcome packet and all the information you will need to volunteer with us.

Overnight Shelter Shift Volunteer During COVID-19

ROOTS Young Adult Shelter in Seattle's U-District is open 365 nights a year and serves 45 young adults, ages 18-25, each night. We are fighting to end homelessness in Seattle and need your support. At ROOTS, we use every day to make a difference in the lives of homeless youth. The biggest impact is made by our overnight volunteers, who are crucial in this effort. We require all volunteers and staff to wear gloves and face masks throughout the duration of their shift. Volunteers are free to bring in their own face masks or other PPE, and we can provide gloves and disposable face masks on-site. The wellbeing of our volunteers is of the utmost importance, and we only ask you to commit to volunteering if you are safely able to do so. Upon arriving to each shift your Volunteer Supervisor or other staff will ask you questions listed on the ROOTS COVID-19 screening guide and will take your temperature. Staff and guests are screened in the same way upon entering the space. We appreciate your understanding in this process. Overnight volunteers stay the night at our shelter along with our guests. This shift starts at 8 pm and ends at 8:30 am the following morning. On Fridays the shift is from 8 pm to 9:30 am. All overnight volunteers are supported by Overnight Supervisors and an Overnight Counselor, in case there are any questions or concerns during your shift. Volunteers work directly with our guests and help ensure the emotional and physical safety of the space. Shifts are broken up into three 3-hour awake shifts. This will mean first shift Overnight Volunteers are awake from 11pm-2am. Second shift will be 1:30am-4:30am, and third shift will be 4am-7am. This change is due to the new shelter space being split between two levels; we have more space to monitor with similar levels of staffing. Overnight Volunteers are responsible for assisting in walk-arounds of the room every 10 minutes, being available for guests who require emergency assistance, and completing guest laundry. Overnight volunteers will spend most of their shift sleeping, and bedding is provided. We also provide dinner in the evening and breakfast in the morning to our Overnight Volunteers. We ask overnight volunteers to commit to one night a week. Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather, have had recent contact with anyone demonstrating COVID-19 symptoms, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms within the last 14 days. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions are discouraged from pursuing our in-shelter Evening and Morning volunteer roles at this time. Our Sanitation role, which maintains a greater level of social distancing, is still available to everyone. If you can help during this time and are healthy enough to do so, please come volunteer with us! You must be at least 18 years of age for this opportunity.
