A spouse/friend is signed up for a shift, but there aren't any open shifts for me, can I come along and help out? Yes, trained volunteers may come along with a spouse or friend who is filling a shift so that you can serve together. There is always something that needs to be done.
What happens if there are not enough volunteers to open the shelter?
The shelter will not open if the volunteer slots are not filled by Sunday at 9 pm for Monday - Thursday shifts and Thursday by 9 pm for Friday - Sunday shifts.
Can you sign up for two consecutive slots?
Yes, you can sign up for two slots. For example, you can sign up for the first and second overnight shift consecutively on the same night.
Can I bring something to do at the shelter?
Yes, quiet activities, which the volunteer can do during the night shift, are allowed.
What happens if the roads are too dangerous to travel on?
If a volunteer cannot get to the shelter they need to call the Shelter Manager On-Call as soon as possible so that a ride or alternate volunteer can be found.
