We Need you
Our Volunteers bring light to our guests
WATTS is grateful to work with so many caring individuals, families, churches, organizations, and businesses. Their tireless service makes our reach go far beyond what we could ever achieve on our own.
There are many opportunities in various capacities
We invite groups or individuals to provide and serve dinners and breakfasts each day for the Overnight Shelter. There are also opportunities to provide and serve lunches and breakfasts for our Warming Center and Cooling Center.
Each evening when guests arrive at the Overnight Shelter, we need volunteers to collect information from them as part of our registration/intake process.
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 games, do puzzles, etc. with them after dinner and before lights-out.
An overnight volunteer is needed each night. The overnight volunteer provides support to our Night Managers as needed. A cot is provided so that you have a place to sleep.
We provide bus transportation for our guests to the various host locations each evening and back to the drop-off point each morning. Licensed CDL volunteer drivers are needed to drive the bus along with a ride-along volunteer. There is also a need to transport all the cots, linens, etc. from location to location each week when the host changes.
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, flu, minor wounds, vitals, etc. All major health issues are referred to doctors outside of our shelters.
