Come and share your talents with guests at Bailey's Crossroads Community Shelter (BCCS)!

BCCS is an emergency shelter for single adults experiencing homelessness. It is a place where people can have a roof over their head, three meals a day, and access to case management services. In addition to the essentials, we hope to cultivate a welcoming environment. BCCS is looking for volunteers to lead group creative activities in the evenings.

This opportunity is perfect for anyone who believes in the therapeutic benefits of the arts and who gets excited about sharing their talent with others. Anything from leading a drum circle to teaching a painting class - we just want to get a little more artsy around here.

Volunteers are an important part of the New Hope Housing family. As an organization initially founded and run by volunteers, we consider them to be the lifeblood and heritage. They come from many different backgrounds and cultures and each person brings energy that allows us to expand the programming and services we offer.
