ROOTS Young Adult Shelter – Evening Volunteer

ROOTS is a young adult shelter that is almost exclusively volunteer run, serving 18-25 year olds. We are open 365 days a year, with up to 45 guests per night. Volunteers are needed to help with preparing and serving dinner, handing out supplies, and most importantly, building meaningful relationships with the folks who stay here. This is a great chance to make a visible impact in the lives of the people we serve, and be part of a wonderful volunteer community. Check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ROOTS.Shelter or the website rootsinfo.org and see below for more info if you would like to be a part of ROOTS.

This opportunity is for Evening Volunteers!

ROOTS evening volunteers engage with guests to socialize and build community, while working as part of a team to ensure the emotional and physical safety of the shelter space. Evening volunteers help set up the shelter, complete intake paperwork for new guests, hand out hygiene supplies and bedding, and supervise guest activities such as computer time and smoke breaks. Most importantly, evening volunteers spend time with guests chatting over dinner, playing board games, and watching TV together. Evening volunteers provide guests with a sense of stability while helping ensure our shelter runs smoothly and efficiently.
