We are asking for Help!

We have a special request.

Interfaith Action of Evanston needs “door greeter” volunteers for the morning Hospitality Center, a place where those who are homeless can receive food and services.

Located at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1509 Ridge Ave. Guests receive breakfast and a safe place to relax or sleep. Job counselors provide advice, encouragement and workshops for guests seeking employment. Computer trainers assist with online applications and resumes.

Door greeters sit in specific locations to ensure that guests remain in designated areas. Depending on where you are sitting, close interaction is minimal. If you are positioned by the entrance/exit, you will be asking guests to sign out when leaving, so there is some interaction there. Time slots for volunteers are from 7am – 9am and 9am – 11:05am. M-F

Many of our volunteers have been with us for years and are over the age of 60. Understandably, some are not comfortable volunteering during this time.

We are looking for youngish people (18+) to help us out. The position responsibilities are minimal and you are welcome to bring a book or electronic device. Feel free to pass this info on! If interested, email us at ia@interfaithactionofevanston.org
