Volunteer Opportunities

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW APPLICANTS:

Our volunteer program will be processing the first round of new volunteer applications (that complete the requirements) the week of July 14th. If you can not make in-shelter orientation that week, they will resume later in August.

Any new application that is submitted after July 14th will not be processed until mid August due to our Volunteer Coordinator being out of office.

You are welcome to proceed but please keep this in mind!
