ORGANIZATION: Haven House

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 126 people are interested
Make dinner for Haven House residents!

You can sign up for one-time opportunities or set up a weekly or monthly plan to prepare

We recommend arriving at 3:30 pm. Any menu items needing defrosting should already be in the refrigerator before you arrive, shelter staff does this. If you plan to deviate from the menu, let us know so we do not defrost unless needed.

Meals should be prepared and ready by 5:30. Dinner is served buffet style.

Dinner volunteers ARE required to clean any meal prep dishes. All pots & pans, knives, cooking utensils, bowls, mixers, blenders, crock pots, roasters, etc. used to prepare the meal must be cleaned before clocking out. Dishes will need to be washed, rinsed, sanitized, dried and put away, and the oven and stove-top cleaned, if needed. The supplies you will use, where to find them, and more detailed instruction will be discussed during your tour.

*Be sure to cancel via your account if you cannot make your dinner preparation as scheduled so shelter staff can be prepared to make dinner that night. Calling the shelter to cancel as well is helpful in case Volunteer Coordinator is not in the office to receive automatic cancellation email*

About Haven House

Location:

121 WHITEHILLS DR, EAST LANSING, MI 48823, US

Mission Statement

Haven House's mission is to guide and support families who face homelessness on their paths to stable homes.

Description

Haven House has provided temporary shelter for homeless families since 1983. Over the years, the scope of our programs and services has increased dramatically. Not only do we support our clients with basic needs such as shelter, food, clothing, and personal needs items, but we have developed programs that will make an impact on the lives of our families after they have left our shelter.

Giving our clients the opportunity to improve their lives through goal setting, training, and education enables them to become more productive and less apt to become homeless in the future.
