Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Housing Works is powered by a vibrant community of volunteers who lend their time, dedication, and passion to many different roles within our organization. For more information about our mission and programs, visit our website: www.housingworks.org
If you are looking for something fast-paced and customer-oriented, join our team of Baristas! Responsibilities include making espresso drinks, serving food, stocking and maintaining the cafe, washing dishes, working at the cash register, and, most importantly, helping us sustain the warm, welcoming, and unique environment our café has come to provide. All training is done on-site, where you get to learn how to use the espresso machine and the basics of proper food handling.
