Community Shelter Board, in partnership with the YMCA, opened the Van Buren Shelter to address the growing numbers of men, women and families who are experiencing homelessness. The new shelter is designed to move people more quickly into stable housing and stop repeat homelessness. 
Arts & Crafts is a brand new Besa activity! As a volunteer, you will support families and children staying at the shelter, through games and crafts. There is no need to bring anything except a smile, we'll take care of the rest!
Please note: 
  • 14 is the minimum age
  • Closed-toe shoes are required
  • If this is your first time volunteering at the shelter and you would like a tour - please arrive at 8:45a and ask for Caitlin!
  • If you're new to volunteering at Van Buren, please print, fill-out, and bring this liability waiver with you

    We look forward to supporting families with you!
