Community Shelter Board, in partnership with the YMCA, opened a new 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. 
 
As a volunteer, you will work side-by-side with the YMCA kitchen staff to provide dinner to families. This includes: preparing the dining room, serving meals to guests, clean-up and interacting with guests.
