Help families get items they need by organizing, stocking and staffing our on-site household pantry!
Amethyst Place is a recovery housing program for women and their children. While many of our residents are working towards full time care of their children, they may not qualify for SNAP (food stamps) or other support systems so our on-site pantry supplies our residents and alumni with food items, hygiene, household cleaning items and diapers/PullUps.
Pantry assistants will be responsible for opening the pantry for 2 hour shifts, and while on duty will organize and stock items so that residents can find what they want and need easily. Assistants will work with staff to keep track of inventory and requested items to stock in the future. This is a great opportunity to interact with our residents in a short term, focused way. Shifts open currently are Fridays 3:30-5:30 pm and a once a month Saturday shift from 9-11 am.
If you're not familiar with Amethyst Place, please check out our website at www.amethystplace.org and sign up for an Open House session to take a tour and meet our volunteer coordinator, Mandy and learn about all of the volunteer opportunities available. Replying to this ad will also email Mandy directly.
About AMETHYST PLACE INC
2735 TROOST AVE APT A, KANSAS CITY, MO 64109, US
Amethyst Place supports women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and their children, by providing safe, drug-free housing and individualized services to promote healthy families. We help families overcome significant trauma and develop essential life skills. The vision of Amethyst Place is that families will successfully transition to drug-free, independent housing and healthy community living.
Founded in 2000, we provide housing in a safe environment (secured apartment complex) so that moms have a stable home to be reunited with their children. On site therapists help both moms and kids learn to be a family in healthier ways and education is a major focus for both moms and children with tutors and mentors provided. In 2017 nearly half of our residents entered the program without a high school diploma; by the end of the year 14 had their GED and another 5 were preparing for testing.
We'll work with your schedule.
