Many Ways to Help

There are many ways to support our emergency shelter guests and Permanent Supportive Housing residents this holiday season. Whether you’re looking to volunteer individually or with a group, we have a variety of options to choose from. Thank you for thinking of us as you plan your holiday volunteering!

Serve a Meal 

Meals provided by volunteers are so welcomed and appreciated by our shelter guests. Groups can sign up to provide breakfast, lunch, or dinner at our shelter. This is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer with your family, work team, faith community, or other group. You can also sign up to provide a freezer meal that our staff can heat up and serve on nights when we don’t have a group providing a hot meal.

Host Bingo or a Game Night 

Hosting bingo or a game night is a fun opportunity to provide a relaxing activity for our shelter residents. Groups of up to 4 can sign up to host an activity. We’re happy to work with your schedule, but we’ll have more residents available to participate if we schedule bingo and game nights for evenings.

Shop the PSH Wishlist

Help brighten the holidays for our Permanent Supportive Housing Residents! By shopping our PSH Holiday Basket Wishlist, you can provide much-needed items including household linens, clothing, small appliances, and more. You can give individually or work together with your family, work team, or faith community to put together a special gift for a resident. Click here to learn more about how to participate.
