Family Housing Network (FHN) Day Center Assistant

Family Housing Network (FHN) serves low-income families in Pierce County and military veteran households in King, Pierce, Thurston, Snohomish, Kitsap, Mason, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Cowlitz, Pacific or Wahkiakum counties.

The FHN Day Center in Tacoma is a drop-in site that serves families who are experiencing homelessness. The Day Center is open 7 days a week, providing computer access, showers, laundry facilities, meals, diapers, and open use of the community kitchen.

Volunteers are needed on Mondays and Fridays to help assist families visiting the day center.

Volunteers work with staff and "Guests". Volunteers help families schedule shower times, help manage the laundry schedule, pack diaper kits and help staff maintain a small "library" of children's books. Shift times are flexible but help is needed from 10 am to 2 pm and/or from 2pm to 5 pm.

Ideal volunteer candidates are people who are:

  1. Are great with kids and families
  2. Leave judgement at the door
  3. Help foster a warm and welcoming environment
  4. Understand how to build relationships and make people feel comfortable
  5. Care about community
  6. Are flexible when needed
How to get started:
Please email meganed@ccsww.org for a volunteer registration form.

All volunteers need to be fully vetted through CCS Volunteer Services before they can start volunteering. This includes a background check, reference checks and an orientation (usually at FHN). Any volunteer serving onsite would need to provide proof of vaccination (Covid-19) and be fully vaccinated before they can start volunteering. All required PPE is provided for volunteers.
