In Need of Shelter Volunteers:
Hope House serves homeless and impoverished individuals and families in Hancock County.
The agency is in need shelter office volunteers in their transitional shelter, which provides a safe and secure place for women and their children to stay while they get back on their feet.
To become a shelter office volunteer, those interested must complete a 1-hour training, which includes an orientation and tour of the shelter.
Volunteers provide weekend and holiday coverage. Duties include answering the door and phone, accepting donations, documenting residents' needs or questions, completing hourly walk-throughs of the residence, and continuously ensuring that the shelter is accessible to residents. Volunteers work in three hour shifts and schedule using an online system that makes it easy to work around individual schedules. Volunteers should be between the ages of 18 and 65 and in good health with no underlying medical condition. Snacks provided, may bring meals, pairs welcome.
Please sign up for a training here if you are able to help and we will put you in touch with staff at Hope House to set up a training. Thank you!!
