Opportunity Details

Grace House (small homeless shelter) breakfast and/or sleep shift volunteer

Volunteers are an essential and vital part of Grace House! Our volunteers not only provide shift coverage, they also bring a positive connection to the local community and the world-at-large for our guests. Grace House would not exist without its dedicated community volunteer corps.

Volunteers are needed on site Monday through Sunday, 365 days a year.

Grace House currently seeks volunteers to fill the following shifts:

  • Morning Shift:  6:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. on weekdays, 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m on weekends
    Announce breakfast time, set the table, serve breakfast. Chat with guests if you'd like.
  • Overnight Shift:  10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. on weekdays, 10:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m. on weekdays
    Interact with guests, announce bedtime/enforce bedtime rules, tend to guest needs that may arise throughout the shift.  Generally volunteers are able to sleep through their entire shift, in the provided volunteer room with a bed. 

Volunteers must pass a background check and participate in a volunteer training session. Grace House provides volunteer training on the second Monday of each month from 5:00-6:30 PM, or as needed.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at Grace House, please take a moment and read through our Volunteer Guidelines. Then, fill out our Volunteer Application and either email it to our Volunteer Coordinator at, or mail it to us or drop it off in person.  Feel free to call Grace House to ask any questions, or stop by to pick up an application.
