Simpson Housing Services, Inc.

The Navigation Center opened to provide winter shelter and services to those who were living at the Franklin/Hiawatha encampment. This center provides shelter for up to 120 adults without children, and provides on-site housing assistance, medical care, case management, and basic needs. The Navigation Center opened on December 10, 2018, and is scheduled to close no later than May 31, 2019.

Goal of Position

Simpson Housing Services has contracted with a third party to provide on-site meals three times a day. These meals will be prepared off-site and delivered to the Navigation Center. Simpson is looking for teams of 2-3 volunteers who can assist with dinner service twice a month January through May. Volunteers do not need to plan, prepare, or pay for the meals. We are only asking for assistance serving meals.
