Our Saviour’s Housing Volunteer Opportunities

submitted by gilmerje@augsburg.edu

Our Saviour’s Housing provides shelter, comfort, hope, and community for people who are
homeless. They serve over 650 people annually in our Emergency Shelter and Permanent
Supportive Housing programs. Please consider joining as a partner in our work!

Host Bingo for the residents in our Emergency Shelter. We provide the Bingo set; you provide
small prizes such as treats, gift cards, socks, or hygiene items. Bingo is a fun way for our
residents to relax and socialize in the evening.
● This opportunity works for 2-4 people of all ages.
● Bingo can be scheduled almost any evening, usually from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Serve breakfast or dinner for our 21 Emergency Shelter residents. Purchase, prepare, and serve the meal. Both weekday and weekend opportunities are available. This opportunity is best suited for groups of 3-4 people. All meal volunteers must be four
years of age or older.
● Breakfast is served at 7:00 a.m. and clean-up must be complete by 9:00 a.m.
● Dinner is served at 7:00 p.m. and clean-up is usually complete by 8:30 p.m.

Make sandwiches or bag lunches for us to hand out as Emergency Shelter residents leave for the day. You can make the sandwiches off-site at any time and drop them off at the shelter. This opportunity works well for groups of all sizes and ages.

Create cleaning kits for us to give as welcome gifts to new Permanent Supportive Housing
residents. Purchase and assemble all of the essentials for these formerly homeless residents to care for their new homes. Kits should include sponges, dish soap, laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaners, paper towels, etc. Please contact us for a complete list.

Our Saviour’s Housing is in south Minneapolis at 2219 Chicago Avenue (55404) and has
ample off-street parking.
