Volunteer or Host

Our Emergency Shelter Network (ESN) is a program that provides emergency, overnight shelter from October 1, through April 30th. Men, women and children seek refuge in safe, warm locations where they are able to connect with SSPADS' intensive case managers who work diligently to help our participants make the transition from homelessness to becoming social and economic investors in the communities where they live and work.

 

We have plenty of volunteer opportunities available at each of the shelter sites in our network. There are also volunteer site manager opportunities as well. Volunteers play an integral role in our agency and programs, not only lending a physical helping hand, but encouraging, supporting and cheering for our participants as well. For more information on how you can host please call Troy Colbert at

(708) 332-7700 ext. 131. To Volunteer, please call Stephanie Kidd at (708) 332-7700 ext. 121 or email at skidd@sspads.org
