Overnight Shift: Each shelter has its own opening and closing times. The general times are 8:45pm to 7:00am. Arrangements can be made to come in later and/or leave earlier. Just need to make comments to the volunteer coordinator.

Your job is to provide oversight while our guests are in the shelter overnight. Logistically, you will be helping with bedding, totes, and chores while making sure check in and check out times are adhered to for the duration of your shift. You will be diffusing any differences that may occur between guests. You will be there to provide friendship not babysitting. You are in charge for the night but not with a “policeman” attitude. It’s a wonderful time to invest in someone’s life.


Please call 302-956-6006 for questions concerning dinner or food. We have to go meals at various sites.  We will be needing to-go bags for our guests each day at each site.

Intake: Arrive to set up around 8:15 for intake, duties to include: intake form completion, boundaries sign off, and guests bags checked in.

Morning Relief: You will need to ensure that the nightly chores were completed and any follow up cleaning if necessary. Also, an inventory list for replenishment of supplies to our supplies coordinator.

AM/PM Transportation:  We can not provide any transportation at this time.
