Hospitality & Intake
Hospitality, greeting and intake volunteers, are the first people our clients encounter; they make sure our participants feel welcomed.
For volunteers working the intake desk, primary tasks include providing essential information about our services to prospective clients and using Filemaker Pro (the Crossroads intake database) to help clients access basic services in the day center. We provide training for volunteers using Filemaker Pro, which is simple and easy to learn.
Assist in bagging and distributing hygiene products to clients.
Help prepare and serve a nutritious and filling meal for 125-150 people. In meal preparation and serving positions, volunteers are asked to complete tasks associated with the daily lunch service. This includes meal prep, cooking, serving, kitchen/dining area clean up, dish washing, and drink service.
You do NOT need a food handlers card but must complete a short expectancy course by our head cook.
Most volunteer opportunities are 2-3 hours in length and do not require a regular commitment.
