GOOD NEWS PARTNERS

Image_202109271101

Our Jonquil Hotel, a 71-unit SRO (single room occupancy) building is looking for volunteers to help at the front desk between 6am and 9pm any day during the week for a 3 hour shift at a time. We welcome any one, including students looking to fulfill community service hours, either 1x a week or up to every day--whatever works for the person.

You will do things like:

  • Answer phones
  • Buzz residents/guests into the building
  • Sign in visitors
  • Fill out work orders for the maintenance crew
  • Put mail in resident mail boxes
The Jonquil Hotel is a community oasis and safe place for residents transitioning out of homelessness. Many are unable to move directly into studios or multi-bedroom rental properties so the Jonquil Hotel is the stepping stone that many need.

Mission Statement

The mission of Good News Partners is to end homelessness and hopelessness with everyone God brings to us, and to foster justice and build bridges of reconciliation.

Description

As a faith-based, 501c3 asset-based community development organization, GNP is committed to providing access to affordable housing, economic development, and education to our resident partners as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency and homeownership. GNP does this through a housing continuum that includes: New Life Interim Housing, a 36-bed shelter for women, women with children, and intact families who are homeless or in immediate crisis; the Jonquil Hotel, a single room occupancy for 71 families; 44 units of subsidized rental housing; and 43 units of cooperative affordable housing for low- and very low-income families. Through our staff, community partners and volunteers, GNP reaches over 500 resident partners and 700 community residents each year.
