Serving dinner to youth and young adults (18 - 25 years of age) experiencing homelessness in our community. At New Horizons, food group volunteers prepare or order dinner meals seven days a week.

By becoming a food group, you have the opportunity to partner with us, providing the consistency of a hot, home-cooked meal to youth and young adults while they receive resources and access to services designed to help lead them towards housing. As a food group volunteer, you and up to 5 others will prepare a meal of your choice for approximately 30 - 40 individuals either in-house at our New Horizons commercial grade kitchen (preferred), or from your own home to drop off at the shelter at dinner time.

Monday - Thursday, dinner is served between 7:00pm - 8:00pm. For volunteers wishing to prepare dinner in the shelter, you may arrive as early as 5:00pm, finishing up by 8:30pm. For volunteers opting to drop off meals, we ask that meals are dropped off between 5:45pm - 6:30pm.

Friday - Sunday, dinner is served between 9:00pm - 10:00pm. For volunteers wishing to prepare dinner in the shelter, you may arrive as early as 8:00pm, finishing up by10:00pm. For volunteers opting to drop off meals, we ask that meals are dropped off between 8:00pm - 8:45pm.

If you don't have the capacity to provide a meal but will still like to help with service, we are also looking for volunteers who are able to serve dinner. When meals are dropped off by food groups, volunteer servers are needed. Serving time is from 6:00pm - 8:30pm (Monday - Thursday) and 8:00pm - 10:15pm (Friday - Sunday). The Volunteer and Food Service Manager will send out a dinner service availability sign-up schedule to serving volunteers each month.

If you have questions, please reach out to our Volunteer and Food Service Manager, Rodney Scott (rodneys@nhmin.org or call 206.374.0866) so we can give you more detailed information on this volunteer opportunity.

Thank you for your interest in supporting youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in our community!

Mission Statement

New Horizons Ministries is a multi-cultural organization whose mission is to be in relationship with homeless and street-involved youth, serving and loving in the way of Jesus, equipping them to leave street life.

Description

New Horizons Ministries began in 1978 in response to the growing number of homeless adolescents living on the streets of Seattle. What started as a program of street outreach has evolved over the years into an entire continuum of care, with an emphasis on relationship building.

The staff of New Horizons, both paid and volunteer, establish relationships with youth through street outreach as well as by providing meals, clothing, and other emergency services. New Horizons also provides case management, relational counseling, recreational activities, job mentoring, life discovery classes, and a comprehensive referral system. All of these services are designed to equip youth with the life skills, confidence, and sense of community that are vital for them to successfully exit street life.
