About

An Overnight Volunteer for the Winter Overflow Shelter will assist the Shelter Manager in operating the Overflow Shelter and providing guests with a safe, supportive environment. The Overflow Shelter will be opened during inclement weather once all overflow beds at other shelters in the area have been filled. An Overnight Volunteer will sign up to be either on-call for a designated night or to be on an on-call list for nights that do not have a designated volunteer. An Overnight Volunteer will be notified at approximately 6pm if they will be needed during a specific evening; they will then need to be at the Overflow Shelter from approximately 8pm to 8am. An Overnight Volunteer may rest off and on throughout the night but will mostly be awake in the event of an individual needing to enter the shelter in the middle of the night.

The address of Willis Dady (entered above) is not where the overflow shelter will be located. We are unable to release that information, although it is in a central location of Northwest Cedar Rapids. The volunteer will be notified that day.
