Serve a Meal
We serve approximately 100 meals per month between our Drop-In Center (downtown) and Shelter location (off South Broadway).
This opportunity is appropriate for groups of 2 to 6 individuals. **Due to safety, we require at least two individuals per meal group.
Please note the minimum age to volunteer at the Drop-In Center downtown is 18 and the minimum age to volunteer at the Shelter is 12.
Breakfast is served at our Drop-In Center Monday – Friday.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at our Shelter 7 days a week (with the exception of lunch on Wednesday).
We have a group volunteer opportunity!
Is your organization or group interested in doing a service project in October? If so, we have the opportunity for you! We are seeking 15-20 individuals to help us spruce up the Spot, our Drop-In Center, at 21st and Stout with some landscaping. We hope to do the project sometime in mid-late October. **We are currently on hold as we try to figure out the exact project date. As soon as we know more, we will update this. Thank you for your patience.
Join our Day of Service
These projects take place once every other month: May 10, July 12, September 13, and November 8.
A typical project might include deep cleaning and painting our Drop-In Center or light yard work at one of our housing facilities. Our locations see a very high number of youth and these projects are critical at helping our spaces reflect the respect that we have for them.
Volunteer Opportunities for Individuals
We have a limited number of volunteer opportunities throughout the year for individuals to get involved, on a longer-term, ongoing basis. These opportunities can include GED tutoring, class offerings (such as yoga or art) or administrative support. Our current individual volunteer opportunities are:
- Shower Monitor Volunteers at our Drop-In Center (weekday, morning hours)
- GED Tutors (weekday, afternoon hours)
- Mock Interviewers (weekday, mid-morning hours)
We require at least a 6 month commitment for these opportunities and a $42 background check fee.
Please contact our Community Engagement Officer, Tamar Berner at 303.974.2954 or [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering as an individual.
