Overnight Host Volunteer
CLAREMONT HOMELESS ADVOCACY PROGRAM - CHAP
Are you a night owl? From 10:00pm-6:00am your presence keeps our guests safe. You may spend your time sleeping, interacting with the few guests still awake, or doing whatever you enjoy to pass the time. After seeing 10 guests warmly sheltered and secure you will leave knowing that you directly served your community.
A typical night:
- At 10:00pm relieve the Opening Host
- Sleep or stay awake as the homeless residents rest
- Leave at 6:00am when the Closing Host arrives
- You may take overnight shifts as you are able
As an Overnight Host you ensure safety for our guests. You do not need any experience working with homeless people to start as an Overnight Host tomorrow. Please send us your contact information at CHAP4claremont@gmail.com if you would like to serve as an Overnight Host.
About CLAREMONT HOMELESS ADVOCACY PROGRAM - CHAP
830 W BONITA AVE, CLAREMONT, CA 91711, US
CHAP seeks to help our Claremont homeless neighbors find their way home.
CHAP focuses on providing empowering mentorship to enable single men and women to work again and secure sustainable housing. Homeless residents are given the opportunity to sleep in a safe environment and a place to store their personal belongings 365 days a year. Within its five year history, CHAP has helped 15 individuals reach gainful employment and sustainable housing.
But our work at CHAP is just beginning. There are still many homeless residents in Claremont. By providing them with a friendly mentor and a safe place to sleep, we believe that we can help them reach their goals.
Located in downtown Claremont, CHAP is an all-volunteer organization. At CHAP, you will find volunteers either paired with an individual homeless resident or managing the overnight accommodation. Every hour that a dedicated volunteer spends at CHAP directly impacts a homeless neighbor. We believe that any volunteer can immediately change a homeless person’s life. Will you be that person?
