We are so glad you are interested in volunteering with us. Volunteers are imperative for our ministry and we know that C-U at Home couldn't function without the help of dedicated partners. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of others, please fill out a Volunteer Application.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are various ways that you can get involved below. Each role is vital to our organization and serves a very important purpose. We truly believe that our friends from the community are the lifeblood of the ministry!

  1. Be a friend of the Phoenix: Spend some time at The Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center, open Monday-Friday 12-5pm. Various positions are available, including Greeter, Laundry/Shower Concierge, Activities Leader, Setup Assistant, and even Hair Stylist!
  2. Offsite positions: Not available during Phoenix hours, but still want to help out? You could help with administrative support, organize a donation drive, or be a Volunteer Ambassador. Got a creative volunteering idea not listed here? Let's talk about it!
  3. Facilities Advisors: We need people with expertise in plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and/or general contracting to help us make wise decisions about how to handle day-to-day facilities issues.
  4. Photographers: We need talented photographers to help us improve our website and other communications, which are an important part of our mission of engaging and mobilizing the community.

Emergency Warming and Cooling

If the weather becomes extremely hot or extremely cold, The Phoenix opens for emergency warming or cooling hours. The Phoenix normally opens from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for these situations, but the hours may be different as it is decided on a case by case basis.

As the winter season approaches, we welcome friends from the community to come and spend time with us before or after work hours. It is helpful to have friends that are willing to be "on call" for emergency warming hours. If this interests you, please contact us. We would love to have you join us!
