HIGH PRIORITY: Donation Center Acceptance Volunteer!

We are in need of a self-motivated and friendly Donation Center Acceptance Volunteer to assist in making houses homes! 

The Donation Center is our sorting hub of all donations that come to Partners in Housing, and this is where we make the decision whether to put items out for families to shop or to pass them along to other organizations that are in need. All items donated from the community are given to Partner Families (families in the Partners in Housing program) at no cost.

Partners in Housing is a non-profit that provides transitional housing to families experiencing homelessness in Colorado Springs. Throughout their year in the program, families will have access to self sufficiency classes, job readiness programs, budget counceling, child support, and more. After entering the Partners in Housing program, 90% of families find stable housing. 

Donation Center Acceptance Hours: Mondays between 9:00am and 12:00pm 

Volunteers in this position will roll in donations that donors have placed in our "contact-less" black bins directly outside the Donation Center and unload them in our back area. This will require bending, twisting, and the ability to lift bags and boxes of donations out of a bin. Volunteers can sort during downtime, but the focus will be on bringing in donations. We have found that during donation drop-offs, donors often times do not have the full picture of what Partners in Housing does in the Colorado Springs community. With this, we are hoping that volunteers will speak to donors about what Partners in Housing does and how to get connected. All other shifts will focus on sorting donations and offering a helping hand to Partner families shopping.  Families will sign up by appointment only and there is a limit of one family shopping at a time.

Come join us and make a difference in our client's lives and work with an awesome team!
