The Dorothy Day Hospitality House is staffed exclusively by volunteers. Therefore, we are always looking for individuals and groups who enjoy making a difference. Volunteering at the House provides opportunities for meeting and working with many interesting and wonderful people in a warm environment. Whatever talents or gifts you or your group have to offer, we look forward to meeting and working with you. An individual or group can volunteer at the Dorothy Day Hospitality House once a month or more, as it fits one's schedule.
Our primary volunteer opportunity for individuals is our Front Desk volunteers. Front Desk volunteers manage guest registrations, mingle with our guests, provide hospitality to the homeless, and help our guests with other needs. We need volunteers to help us at least every other week at the front desk during any of the following shifts: 7-9 am 4-7 pm 7-9:30 pm We need volunteers to help cook, serve, and clean up the daily 6 PM meal.
If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by and visit the House. The best times to visit are 8 am, 5 pm, and 8 pm. Please send an email with you name and your area of interest to our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org We will be sure to get back to you shortly. Thank you for your consideration! ** Please note: the House is closed daily from 9 AM to 4 PM. Front desk volunteers must be at least 18 years old. **
Guests may stay from 4 PM - 9 AM. Visitors are welcome from 7 PM - 9 PM and from 7 AM - 9 AM.
