Our Volunteers bring light to our guests

Volunteer Opportunities

WATTS is grateful to work with so many caring individuals, families, churches, organizations, foundations, and businesses. Your tireless service makes our reach go far beyond what we could ever achieve on our own!

Cooling Center Volunteers (daytime)

July 29 - August 30, 2024
Assist our Managers at our daytime shelter!  Various roles available including: shelter volunteer, shower monitor, and providing lunch!  Also sign-up here if your business or organization would like to do a table and provide free resources to our guests.

Evening Medical Volunteers

November 4, 2023 - March 30, 2024
Take blood pressures, help with understanding medications, and offer medical advice to our guests at our Overnight Shelter!

Ways our Volunteers Serve...

We invite groups or individuals to provide and serve dinners and breakfasts at the Overnight Shelter to supplement the churches and their volunteers.  Contact us to get connected!  There are also opportunities to provide and serve lunches and breakfasts for our daytime Warming Center and Cooling Center.
From snacks and drinks for our Warming & Cooling Centers, to thermal underwear, t-shirts, and socks, your donations keep WATTS going!
Guest Visitation
Some of our guests enjoy just sitting and talking with you, sharing stories in a time of judgement-free fellowship.  You can also share meal-time with our guests, or play cards & games, do puzzles, etc. with them after dinner and before lights-out.

Guests also stay at the host location all day for holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day) and visitation time slots on those days are available.

You can also assist our Managers at the daytime shelter (Warming Center/Cooling Center), making coffee, setting out food, visiting with guests, etc.
Medical Volunteers
Although we do NOT provide formal medical care, volunteer health professionals are needed to provide basic first aid and attend to other minor health concerns of our guests, such as colds, headaches, minor wounds, taking vitals, etc.  All major health issues are referred to doctors outside of our shelters.
