Volunteer

During these unprecedented times, we want to prioritize the health and safety of our Village family – clients, volunteers, staff, and supporters. We are suspending all NEW volunteers and groups until further notice. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Heidi Gauthier at hgauthier@nstreetvillage.org.  

If you are looking to support the Village, we are in need of in-kind donations and direct contributions to ensure the Village doors are always open and supplies are stocked.

By volunteering at N Street Village, you play an essential role in improving the lives of homeless and low-income women in our community. N Street Village hosts more than 400 volunteers annually who donate more than 12,000 hours of service to our community.

VIRTUAL VOLUNTEERING

Donation Drive and Supply Kits: We are looking for volunteers to collect and assemble supply kits for clients and residents. Choose from options like Toiletry Kits, Craft Kits, or Welcome Kits. This is a great opportunity for groups to give back together. For more information and to receive a list of items, please contact Donna-Marie Thompson.

Virtual Days of Service: Consider joining us for a virtual day of service where employees can gather with Village staff over Zoom for an event of your choice. From assembling supply kits together to facilitating a Village Q&A, we have plenty of options for you to choose from! For information on how to get started, please contact Heidi Gauthier.

Sponsor Miriam’s House Community Dinners: Typically, Miriam’s House volunteers prepare and serve dinner Sunday and Wednesday evenings. During the health crisis, our volunteer groups haven’t been able to prepare and cook dinner at the facility as usual, but we are looking for generous volunteers to provide a meal for 27 clients. To ensure food safety standards, the meals are required to be prepared in a commercial kitchen or ordered from a local restaurant. For more information, please contact Donna-Marie Thompson.

Sponsor a “Sweet Treats” Party for Community Residents: Purchase a fruit platter, cookie tray, pie or cake for 12-40 residents, depending on the residential program of your choice. For more information, please contact Donna-Marie Thompson.
