Volunteer At Your Local Homeless Shelter
HomewardBound relies heavily on our volunteers to keep the facility running. We always need people to help cook and/or serve dinner and to help us with events and food drives.
Ways You Can Help
Monday – Friday
There are plenty of things to do around the shelter.Things like janitorial work, sorting and organizing clothes, organize the Tote Room, read/tutor children after 5pm. These tasks change with the seasons.
Help man information booths at various local festivals and shows.
7 Days A Week
Cooking and/or serving meals here at HomewardBound is one of the most vital jobs our volunteers do for us. This is also one of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities out there! Every month we have holes in our calendar that we must fill.
Things to keep in mind as a Meal Volunteer:
- You and your group will be cooking and serving Breakfast/Dinner.
- We can supply food or ingredients for your meals, but it depends if we have it in stock, otherwise you are responsible to provide your own ingredients.
- We recommend stopping by a day or two before your meal to see what we have before you shop for your meal.
- In the winter months we serve upwards of 150 meals per night and in the summer 100 meals per night.
We understand it may be intimidating to cook for up to 150 people. Now with a $25 sponsorship fee our Culinary Training Program will do all the cooking of the meal and you and your group can come in and serve dinner to our residents. The sponsorship fee helps off set the cost of the meal.
We are also looking for drivers to drive for our Overflow Program on Sunday Mornings and Evenings. To fill this position, the volunteer must be over the age of 25 years, must have a current and valid drivers license with no DUIs or drug or alcohol related offenses in the past five (5) years. This program is from October until April.
If you are interested in helping with this request, please contact Jade by telephone at (970) 256-9424 or by email at JJoyce@hbgv.org.
Every hour you give makes a difference!
