Volunteers Make the Difference
 
Being a volunteer at the Barbara Kettle Gundlach Shelter can be a rewarding experience.  A volunteer at the shelter helps many residents and their children by being an empathetic support person.  Once our 16 hour volunteer training is completed, volunteers sign up for shifts that fit their schedule.  The schedule is made on a monthly basis with the volunteers selecting the shifts they can work.

Volunteers are also needed for childcare during support group.  This is a two hour commitment once a week.

Please call 337-5632 for more information about volunteer training.
