There are many ways to help people struggling with homelessness and one way is with the gift of your time.
We are always looking for volunteers to help around the shelter and support our front-line staff and residents. Responsibilities include welcoming and socializing with residents in a friendly and non-judgmental manner, as well as minor cleaning and maintenance tasks. Ryandale Shelter welcomes volunteers with unique skills such as playing cards, preparing a meal to bring in to the shelter, and assistance with fundraising tasks.
Monetary and in-kind donations such as food and personal care items are also greatly appreciated.
