ORGANIZATION: Lawrence Community Shelter

Cooks are ESSENTIAL to keeping Lawrence Community Shelter guests fed while they are staying at the shelter! All cooks will be trained by staff and may work alongside staff, depending on skill level. All experience levels welcome! All guests at Lawrence Community Shelter are preparing to be housed from the moment they arrive. We need caring community members like YOU to make sure our guests receive nutritious meals while they are in a challenging time of their lives.

Cooking shifts may also include serving meals and washing dishes during lunch shifts.

About Lawrence Community Shelter

Location:

3655 E 25th St, LAWRENCE, KS 66046, US

Mission Statement

Providing safe haven to individuals and families facing homelessness.

Description

The Lawrence Community Shelter is the only emergency homeless shelter serving Lawrence and Douglas County in Kansas. From the first day a guest comes to the Lawrence Community Shelter (LCS), they begin participating in many activities to address the core issues causing their homelessness or the risk of becoming homeless. Each guest is engaged by caring, informed people concerned with meeting their specific needs and offering a partnership to develop a plan to find solutions. These solutions may include employment, counseling, locating a home, or entering a recovery program for substance abuse and/or mental illness treatment. Night shelter guests are provided a secure environment and a sense of community, and referral to crisis assistance or day shelter programs.
