We ask our volunteers to stay for the full length of their scheduled volunteer shift. If you need to adjust your hours, please let Emma Lewis (505-242-4399, ext 329) know ahead of time. Should an emergency arise during your shift resulting in an early departure, please let your shelter contact know.
The sooner we know of a cancellation, the better! With our online system, you will be able to assign/change/cancel your shifts as needed, but please know that changing or cancelling your shift will affect shelter operations. If you are cancelling within a 24-hour window of your assigned shift, please contact Emma Lewis as soon as possible so all efforts to cover your shift can be made.
All questions can be directed to either Emma or the shelter contact during your shift.
We ask that you use your best judgement during this time and don’t put yourself in any harm, but please let us know if you won’t be coming so that we can make alternate plans.
Mary began volunteering in January 2017. She saw the need to help in the community and wanted to be hands-on in her efforts to combat homelessness and food insecurity. Mary truly believed in mission through action, and she can often be found in our kitchen serving meals to clients. She knows many by name and makes a point to connect with them every week when she volunteers. Thank you, Mary, for your continued support and desire to serve!
