    Opportunities for Adult Volunteers

    Below are just a few  ways in which you can volunteer!

    Donation Drive: Are you and your friends great at getting donations?  You should host a donation drive for supplies to create outreach and/or welcome kits.  Outreach kits are essential to those experiencing homelessness, providing them with needed toiletries and supplies to keep them healthy and clean.  Often coming from homelessness or shelters, families moving into a home to call their own have nothing.  Welcome kits provide essential household supplies for our neighbors who need them them most. Volunteer individually or as a group.

    Assemble Kits: Are you a natural organizer? Do you like hands-on work? Help our team by assembling outreach and welcome kits.  This volunteer opportunity is available following a donation drive or you and/or your group can supply the items needed for kit assembly.  

    Move a Family from Homelessness to Home: Help to physically move a family from the shelter into their fresh new start.  Additional assistance is needed to help them to set up their house and unpack boxes.  This is perfect for groups.  

    Office Support: Are your closets meticulously organized? We want your help to sort, file, label, and perform other fun organizing tasks that involve reams of paper and electronic data. We may also need your talents to assist us in planning events, recruiting volunteers, and arranging Lunch and Learn opportunities. 

    Share your Talent: Do you have a talent or skill that you would like to share with our residents? They would love to learn it! Recent activities include cooking classes, basic digital literacy workshops, life management skills training, and budgeting classes.

    Host a RENT Party: Are you the host/hostess with the most/mostess?  Do you enjoy planning and facilitating a party?  This opportunity is for YOU!  Check out past Rent Party photos and contact us for more information about this fun and exciting volunteer opportunity. 

    Host a Lunch and Learn or Community Education Event: Share the HNH mission with your co-workers, neighbors, or civic/church groups.  Invite us out and we'll give you some pointers on how you can help us prevent and end homelessness!
