BE A PART OF THE MISSION
Volunteer opportunities have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting health precautions. Please reach out via phone or email for more information if you'd like to volunteer!
We are fortunate to have volunteers who are daytime social workers, nurses, dentists, and other skilled tradespersons.
Volunteers provide food and other services to residents during the shelter phase. Volunteers also assist residents by connecting them to organizations that can provide the services they need and often transport the residents to service providers. Residents continue to be assisted beyond the shelter phase. Volunteers accompany residents, raise funds, and even do legal and accounting work for particular situations.
Core team members work directly alongside residents through the shelter phase and after. This position requires weekly availability for core team and house meetings during the shelter phase. This is a great position for individuals that have experience working with unhoused individuals or community living.
Accompaniment is individually tailored to meet the needs of residents. Needs might include helping a resident with their resume, their finances or running errands. Accompaniment can also mean simply spending time with a resident that needs a listening ear.
Assisi Houses need renovation prior to opening and during transition to permanent residence. The houses also need maintenance which can include appliance installation, painting, installing floors and more. This is a great opportunity for individuals with a background in construction or maintenance.

VOLUNTEER POSITION DESCRIPTIONS
Fundraising for Assisi House includes organizing events, soliciting for donations, and grant writing. Volunteers with any of these skills are vital to our organization.
Assisi House is always on the look out for properties that can be utilized for the Assisi House mission and model. We are in need of volunteers that are interested in being a part of the property search and inquiry process.
Assisi House residents occasionally need rides to appointments. Occasionally driving residents is a great way to get to know them. Further, volunteers with trucks are always needed to move furniture, appliances or other large items for the houses.
