Shower Program Assistant
The Shower Assistant helps provide one of the most essential services for Rose Haven guests- a long, private shower. It is a great position for a student, as there is some downtime between showers you can use that time to study or read.
In this role you will be working with a staff member to provide clean showers and restrooms for our guests to use. We answer the door and invite guests in one at a time to use one of the two private restrooms or showers. After each use, wearing mask and gloves, we spray all surfaces with a medical grade disinfectant, let that evaporate, then wipe touch points with an additional disinfectant wipe. This role is limited to female identified volunteers.
We are following COVID-19 safety protocols by limiting the number of volunteers in the building, keeping at least a 6' distance from each other. Volunteers must do a temperature check when they enter the building. Masks are required at all times, and we ask volunteers to wear gloves when working in the shower area.
08:45 AM to 12:15 PM
We have an available shift on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

Safety, Resources and Community:
Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center in Portland OR serving women, children and marginalized genders experiencing poverty, trauma and intersecting issues. Service hours are Monday - Friday from 9:00-12:00; and volunteer opportunities are available from 8:00-4:00.
Rose Haven is a low-barrier agency that exists not to just meet basic needs, but to nurture souls and improve the emotional, mental and physical well-being of our guests and our community as a whole. We understand our agency exists within larger systems of oppression, and we seek to disrupt those structures through radical hospitality, advocacy on an individual and community level, and meaningful connections to resources. Recognizing the isolation and loneliness that homelessness can create, we work to hold a space where all guests can connect, have voice and be empowered.
