The Horizon House Volunteer Program has been dedicated to educating and engaging individuals to become life-long community advocates for the homeless. We believe that ending homelessness is a community effort. That is why we strive to provide a holistic approach to volunteerism that includes both service and learning. Typical volunteer activities in the past have included:
- Kitchen Volunteer:
Help with organizing and serving of food to the neighbors. Also cleaning up in the kitchen.
- Computer Lab Volunteer:
Interact with the neighbors by answering their questions as they work on the computers searching for jobs, applying for jobs, writing resumes, etc…
- Donation Center Volunteer:
Sort clothing and toiletry donations
- Dayroom/Front Desk Volunteer:
Assisting the Horizon House staff with the daily needs of the neighbors, cleaning tables, sweeping, sorting mail, answering questions, retrieving needed items
Filing paperwork, addressing envelopes, entering data on computer, etc..
(Volunteer shifts last for usually 2 hours minimum. Volunteers can work longer shifts if desired.)
Volunteer Information Sessions take place at Horizon House on:
- The first Monday of each month, 12 -1 pm.
The session will include basic information about Horizon House services, a tour, information about ways to volunteer, and the opportunity to sign up to volunteer.
