Room at the Inn

August Volunteer Sign-Ups

Unity Shelter - Room at the Inn provides safe emergency housing, healthy meals, and year-round case management services to help homeless women secure and retain permanent housing.

Volunteers and staff provide an essential service. The shelter cannot operate without at least 2 people present at all times. We need your help to provide a place for our guests to stay "home" and stay safe. 

If you have signed up for a volunteer shift, but cannot attend due to an illness or personal emergency, please stay home and call/text Nohe (Shelter Manager) at 541-231-2020 or Natalie (Lead Staff) at 541-315-6219.

Volunteers, please review these limitations:    

  • If you are OVER 60 and/or have chronic health issues, please follow the public health guidelines and stay home or get vaccinated before volunteering.
  • Most current staff, volunteers and guests have been vaccinated or will be soon.  All of our current volunteers are eligible for vaccination, no matter their age or other status.
  • All genders are welcome, but men cannot volunteer after 6 p.m. when guests are showering and preparing for bed.  
  • You must be over 18 to volunteer in the shelter room.
  • You must be 14 and older to volunteer in the kitchen.
  • You must be practicing state guidelines for social distancing and mask wearing.
  • You must wear a mask during your shift, unless you are eating or drinking.  We can provide a mask if you don't have one.
  • Please, review the attached documents regarding civil rights, confidentiality, and basic kitchen safety before your first volunteer shift.  

Volunteer shifts in the kitchen and overnight shifts involve minimal contact with others. 

Vounteers in the main shelter room have more interactions but social distancing is enforced. 

OVERNIGHT Volunteers: Please, bring your own sleeping bag and pillows. We provide a clean bed in a quiet and private room. Volunteers can sleep from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m. or longer. Wifi and an outlet are provided.   

Kitchen Volunteers: Volunteers assist with meal prep, meal service, dishwashing, and snack preparation. Please, read the kitchen safety document before you come in. Volunteers will need to follow all basic food safety guidelines when helping in the kitchen. Kitchen staff will be available to answer any questions or concerns.

Volunteers in the main shelter room: Volunteers greet guests and help with basic tasks, such as: folding laundry, scheduling showers, sanitizing surfaces, and microwaving food. When it is quiet, volunteers can read, use their phone, knit, or anything they'd like.

LOCATION: 1166 NW Jackson -- the large gym-like Community Center.  We cannot stay open without a volunteer and staff member present at all times.  

Contact: If you would like to contact the shelter, you can call us at 541-207-4636. If you would like to email the shelter, you can reach us at [email protected].

If you have signed up for a volunteer shift, but cannot attend due to an illness or personal emergency, please stay home and call/text Nohe (Shelter Manager) at 541-231-2020 or Natalie (Lead Staff) at 541-315-6219.
