Willis Dady Homeless Services

  • 4 people are interested

Willis Dady is looking for individuals to answer phones and greet visitors at the front desk of the shelter during weekday hours, for about an hour or two between 4:00 pm and 7:30 pm. Hours will be adjusted according to volunteer availability and shelter needs. Volunteers will be trained on how to professionally answer the phones, transfer calls, and relay messages. Volunteers will also learn how to operate the electronic door system, answer basic guest questions, and accept donations.

This is a great opportunity for individuals looking for a relaxed but crucial volunteer need. Individuals able to commit to the same day(s) each week for at least two months are preferred, but all interested should apply and work out a schedule with Willis Dady's volunteer coordinator.
