Support Unhoused Community Members at Shelters

Volunteers are needed to support the day-to-day operations of new, emergency shelters in Santa Cruz and Watsonville

Tasks include checking-in participants; food service; monitoring common areas, assisting staff with day-to-day operations; notifying supervisors of emerging needs.
What skills are needed for this role?
1. Friendliness, willingness to engage with residents. This is a very person-centered role interacting with residents for the entire shift - while maintaining social distancing of 6-feet at all times.
2. Flexibility and problem-solving. We won't have everything figured out at the start and there will be some trial and error.
3. You don't need experience in a shelter – we just need people with a positive attitude who are flexible and adaptable.

Volunteers will be provided with personal protective equipment (masks and gloves) and resources to maintain safety.
