Community Shelter Board, in partnership with the YMCA, opened a shelter to address the growing numbers of men, women, and families who are experiencing homelessness. The shelter is designed to move people more quickly into stable housing and stop repeat homelessness. 
As a volunteer, you'll work in groups to support the shelter and homeless families. This may include: assisting the YMCA kitchen staff with dinner preparation, organizing and sorting warehouse donations, and sorting books in the library.  
  • A lead volunteer from Van Buren Shelter will be on-site to provide orientation and training.
  • A tour will also be provided.
  • Parking is available on-site. 
  • Closed-toe shoes are required.
  • If you're new to this event, please print, fill-out, and bring this liability waiver with you.
  • A Besa representative will greet your team and help answer any questions.
