ROOTS Young Adult Shelter is an emergency homeless shelter in Seattle's U-District. We are open 365 nights a year and serve 45 young adults, ages 18-25, each night!

We have two different types of morning volunteers, Breakfast Crew volunteers and Morning Floor Volunteers.

Breakfast Crew volunteers start at 6:15 am and end their shift at 8:30 am Sunday through Fridays, and 6:45 am to 9:00 am on Saturdays. Volunteers work as a team of 3-4 to help prepare and serve food to guests and clean up the kitchen. Feel free to bring with you any food you’re interested in cooking!

Morning Floor volunteers work as a team to engage with guests, hand out hygiene supplies, help clean up shelter, enforce program rules and help ensure the emotional and physical safety of the space. After guests leave, volunteers help to restock hygiene supplies, prepare bedding for the next night, and help with any other clean up. Becoming a morning volunteer is one of the best ways to get to know our shelter guests and learn about a new community of people!
