Extreme Weather Shelter Volunteers
Every winter volunteers are needed for Yakima County's Extreme Winter Weather Shelters. The shelters provide a safe, warm place for those who are homeless in Yakima County when overnight temperatures become dangerously low. Those who would like to help will need to attend volunteer training which is usually held several times in November and December. Information for the 2012 trainings will be posted in the fall.
For additional information about the Extreme Weather Shelter Program, please contact Dave Hanson at Sunrise Outreach Center of Yakima: 509-225-9310.
Rod's House, a drop-in center for Yakima's homeless youth, is looking for volunteers. They are in need of individuals over the age of 23 to spend time mentoring our youth, tutoring youth, helping to keep Rod's House clean, preparing meals and organizing donations. Hours are between 3pm and 6pm, Monday through Friday. For additional information please contact Elizabeth Pulice at 509-895-2665 or email@example.com.
