Greetings! My name is Brian Abe and I am the Shelter Access Coordinator at Yamhill Community Action Partnership (YCAP) though VISTA/AmeriCorps and developing shelter volunteers with community outreach support.

We are reaching out to individuals and community partners to develop a network of volunteers that are interested in supporting housing and homelessness initiatives locally. You are receiving this email because you have participated in past volunteer opportunities to support persons experiencing homelessness and we would like to invite you to join us!

Many of us have experienced both the personal and indirect impacts from COVID-19 and are looking for ways to rebuild. We know community collaboration is key as we seek to build our volunteer network and increase the ways volunteers can support our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Right now, we are building an interest list of volunteers who would like to receive communications and volunteer opportunities as they arise. We currently have both active volunteer opportunities and are building interest lists for future opportunities.

  • Volunteering with one of YCAP’s partner shelters (both Newberg and McMinnville locations) to ensure continued shelter access for all.
  • Yard maintenance volunteer with YCAP shelter properties
  • File building/administrative volunteers (requires regular commitment)
  • Mobile Shower volunteer interest list
  • 2022 Point In Time Homeless count interest list
  • Food Box Delivery to Clients at Motel 6 and Best Western in McMinnville, Oregon

Simply email me back to be on our Homeless Response Network volunteer list and we will keep you informed of new opportunities and needs as they arise. You can also email me if you are interested in any of the activities listed above at BrianA@yamhillcap.org. I’m also happy to chat about any other volunteer ideas you may have.

Thank you for your interest in addressing homelessness and volunteering your time with YCAP!

About Yamhill Community Action Partnership

Mission Statement

Our mission is to advocate for and assist persons toward self-sufficiency.

Description

Yamhill Community Action Partnership, a private nonprofit organization serving residents of Yamhill County since 1980, is one of more than 1,000 community action agencies nationwide. These agencies were created to promote the health, education and general welfare of Americans in need. We serve Yamhill County which covers 718 square miles and is home to approximately 95,000 people. Of these residents, 10% of families, 15% of individuals, and 24% of children under the age of 18 live below the poverty level. YCAP serves many of these low-income residents, such as seniors and those with disabilities who struggle with fixed incomes, as well as individuals and families who are in low-wage positions or seeking employment, survivors of domestic violence, migrant families, homeless families and at-risk youth. We are proud to have served our communities for almost three decades and pledge to continue this service on behalf of our residents for many years to come.
