Urgent need for our shelter! Perfect for people interested in case management or interacting with clients.

The staff of the Overflow shelter need the help of overflow assistant volunteers to maintain the space as a safe, comfortable place for those experiencing homelessness! Volunteers would be responsible for helping maintain cleanliness as well as working with staff to manage in-take, conflict resolution, and other shelter needs from 6:00-10:00 p.m. every day.

The Overflow shelter operates from about mid-November until mid-March! Available nights are managed by the Volunteer Coordinator at Willis Dady, who also manages the application process for this opportunity. Those interested may contact Katie, the Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer@willisdady.org or 319-362-7555.
