Volunteer at the Peninsula Shelter Network!

Helping Homeless Families & Individuals


Shelter Network is committed to providing housing and support services that create opportunities for homeless families and individuals to re-establish self-sufficiency and to return to permanent homes of their own.

Each shelter, and Shelter Network's administration office, has ongoing needs for both short-term (3 months minimum preferred, can be one hour or one day per week) and longer-term volunteers in all areas of the organization.

Opportunities for Individual Involvement:

  • Host afterschool activities or tutor in the Children’s Programs at our family sites.
  • Teach life skills workshops to our clients, such as resume writing, techniques for online job searching, computer literacy, financial literacy/effective budgeting, etc.
  • Help sort donations of clothing and food at all of our shelters.
  • Support with office assistance at a housing site or the administration office.
  • Take a leadership role and join a Support Committee for one of our transitional housing sites.
