ORGANIZATION: Rose Haven

  • 2 people are interested

The Shower Assistant aids in administering one of the most vital services for Rose Haven's guests: a private, long shower. Monday through Friday, visitors have access to showers from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

You and a member of the staff will work together to keep the showers and other facilities clean for our guests. There are three private showers and three vanities for guests to use. You will provide guests with freshly cleaned towels, washcloths, bath mats, shampoo, conditioner, and other shower supplies at guests' request. After each use, the showers are to be disinfected by spraying the surfaces and then wiping the touch sites with a medical-grade disinfectant that has been allowed to dry. Only female-identified volunteers may volunteer for this position.

The wellness desk is where guests can get hygiene supplies and beauty products. Guests can also sign up for Rose Haven's wellness classes and activities. This program allows guests to connect over something other than the challenging circumstances that bring them to the shelter. These activities help empower our guests by giving them opportunities to learn, be creative, heal, and socialize.

We are following COVID-19 mask safety protocols inside Rose Haven. We ask volunteers to wear gloves when working in the shower area.

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.
