Do you want to be part of something meaningful?

                                           Become a Lockport CARES volunteer.

Lockport CARES is anticipating reopening the 192 shelter in May 2019. But, in order to do this CARES needs a minimum of 50 new or returning volunteers. Training is available and ongoing in services and updates are provided to keep you informed of the operations in the shelter. You can help with direct care shifts where there is a minimum of 2 trained volunteers on shift. Shifts include: 7-9 am daily if you are available to stay until 10 am to help with household tasks that will help. Cares is closed to guests 9am until 4 pm, during this time if you like to clean let us know. We open for guests again at 4PM there is a 4-7 PM shift available, which is a busy shift with dinner, prepared by meal ministry volunteers, delivered hot and ready to serve. Pre-screened admissions arrive and are processed into shelter. We like to have 3 volunteers on 4-7 PM shift. The 7-11 PM shift includes “Snack and Share” devotional featuring God’s Love for All nightly. Volunteers talk with the guests about their days events and continue any household tasks. The overnight 11-7 shift is usually staffed by paid employees, but a volunteer to fill in when needed would be great. There are other volunteer opportunities such as maintenance helpers, helping with flower beds, mowing, meal ministry partners, donation sorting, office helpers and a big need for Cleaners.

You can get an application at lockportcares.org or call 438-2273 for more information.
