Night Host for 10-person Homeless Shelter in Shoreline, WA

Save to Favorites

Ronald United Methodist Church

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 16 people are interested

NOTE--we lost some elderly volunteers due to COVID. We are suspending this for the summer months. We are still actively recruiting volunteers, as we would like to re-open. So this opportunity is not open at this moment (September), but PLEASE still contact us if you have interest as we are trying to expand our volunteer base during our "break."

For this volunteer opportunity, the volunteer would supervise 10 regular homeless men and women who spend the night indoors at Ronald United Methodist Church. The volunteer will be able to sleep during the night, but will be on the premises in a supervisory capacity.

Volunteers for this program should be passionate about helping Seattle's homeless crisis, and this is a small, but meaningful, way to do so. There are clear rules for our residents--no violence, etc. But, to be clear, some of the residents are working their way off of drug addiction. Volunteers for this program should understand that recovery is a process.

Mission Statement

We are aiming to help, in a small way, the homelessness crisis in the Seattle area by providing supervised, nightly sheltering for 10 of our unhoused brothers and sisters.


All are welcome to join in any other church endeavors, but for volunteer match we are looking to expand our pool of night hosts for our 10 person homeless sheltering program we began in the snows in February 2019.
