As a private, non-profit organization, the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless relies heavily on the dedicated involvement of volunteers to succeed in its mission. The goal of the Volunteer Program is to provide opportunities for volunteers and the community to connect with the Boulder Shelter and its residents through supporting Shelter programs and services.
With only a handful of paid program staff members on duty each night, volunteers play a crucial role in delivering services to up to 160 homeless residents. The presence of volunteers not only helps to expand the services we can offer, but also brings fresh energy and enthusiasm to the staff and clients. Beyond supporting Shelter services, volunteers act as liaisons between the Shelter community and the public at large.
Please note: Any volunteer under the age of 18 must be directly supervised by an adult volunteer at all times, and any children accompanying adult volunteers must be at least 12 years old.
