ORGANIZATION: Rose Haven

Do you like to get a workout while putting things in their proper place? In that case, we have a position just right for you! Because Rose Haven receives a considerable amount of contributions of clothing and personal care products, we are looking for someone who can assist us with heavy lifting, organizing, and sorting donations to prepare for distribution to our guests! This job requires a variety of physical abilities, including the ability to squat, bend, lift, climb, and push and pull. The volunteers helping out will be expected to spend most of their shifts on their feet.

The distribution of materials depends on the efforts of volunteers who support donations, and we require your aid to be successful in this endeavor. We are able to be flexible with your schedule as long as it comes within our workday, which runs from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Typically, the afternoon shifts run from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., but we are willing to adjust those hours if necessary.

Rose Haven serves women, children, and marginalized genders experiencing poverty and homelessness in Portland. Our guests have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, as many social service agencies have been forced to close their doors. We have remained open to provide meals, showers and restrooms, advocacy, mailboxes and phones, financial assistance, and essential supplies.

About Rose Haven

Location:

1740 NW Glisan St., Portland, OR 97209, US

Mission Statement

Our Vision: A community where everyone has safety, stability, love, health and home. Our Mission: To provide day shelter, resources, emotional support and community connections to women, children and marginalized genders experiencing homelessness and poverty.

Description

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.
