We are in need of Donation Center volunteers to assist in making houses homes! The Donation Center is our sorting hub of all donations that come to Partners in Housing. This is where we make the decision whether to put items out for families to shop or to pass them along to other organizations that are in need.

Partner families are families that are currently enrolled in the Partners in Housing program, and often times are single homeless mothers escaping domestic violence situations. When Partner Families are shopping in our Donation Center, they often only have a few items on hand. When you volunteer in the Donation Center, you are giving mothers in the Colorado Springs community a chance to rebuild their home and work towards stability, self-reliance, and prosperity.

Donation Center Sorting Volunteer Hours:

Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 9am-1pm, 1pm-4pm; Tuesday/Thursday: 1pm-4pm

This role will focus on sorting donations and offering a helping hand to Partner families shopping. Families will sign up by appointment only and there is a limit of one family shopping at a time. This position receives training and is for routine volunteers only. This would be a fantastic opportunity for friend pairs to volunteer together or volunteers that like to work in a quiet environment.

Come join us and make a difference in our clients' lives and work with an awesome team!
