Help us respond to our neighbors experiencing a housing crisis!


Jesse Tree is one of the Treasure Valley's few nonprofits dedicated to preventing people from getting evicted and becoming homeless.


We are seeking remote intake line volunteers who will answer live calls, return voicemails and emails to Jesse Tree's Housing Crisis Line, serving as our front-line workers in making sure that people who call in receive the needed assistance to stay housed.


Volunteers will assist clients with answering a series of screening questions, help them evaluate what resources and services they may be able to utilize during their crisis, and refer them to other needed community programs and resources.


Please email Jesse Tree's Volunteer Coordinator , Ahmee Vang at volunteercoordinator@jessetreeidaho.org if you are interested!
