All volunteers who work with guests must participate in one of our volunteer training
workshops OR consent to onsite training when a shelter is activated. Click this link
to find out What Volunteers Do.
This training includes site set-up and guest intake procedures, crisis intervention
techniques, health protocols, and an in-depth discussion of policies and procedures
for Beds For Freezing Nights.
Volunteers must consent to a criminal background check, for safety and insurance
purposes. To the extent possible, we try to fit volunteers' interests and availability
with specific tasks.
