This month's volunteer opportunities and donation needs

Ways to Get Involved in June!

All opportunities to volunteer and donate things we need, in one convenient place

Our monthly digest of all the ways to engage is here! Bring a dish to an emergency shelter, donate items that shelter and affordable housing residents need, help fill our shelter pantries, and more. We’d love you to work alongside us to support and build our community. It takes a village to house a city.

We protect the locations of our shelters as a matter of privacy and safety for residents, and we count on our volunteers to maintain this confidentiality. If you sign up to cook for a potluck, we’ll email you specific delivery instructions. Please do not share the location of our shelters with anyone who is not a Human Solutions volunteer.
