Catholic Charities Men’s Hostel is looking for paid volunteers for our Extreme Weather Response program. Extreme weather warnings are issued when the temperature dips to 2 degrees or lower. On those days, we will phone volunteers to come in and help the staff supervise the shelter from 7 pm to 11 pm. Overnight shifts are also available. Training will be provided at the end of November. If interested, please call Frances Cabahug at (604) 786-8981 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Aside from the volunteer positions, we have overnight shifts available. The overnight shifts run from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. B.C. Housing will pay $13 an hour ($104 a night).
If you’re interested in participating either as a volunteer or as a temporary worker, let me know if you can come to a 1-hour training session on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 6 p.m., or on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. The sessions will be held at the Men’s Hostel.
To participate or for more information, contact Frances at email@example.com or (604) 786-8981.
Catholic Charities Men’s Hostel began our mission on the 3rd floor of our Vancouver Archdiocese offices, via the orders of Archbishop Johnson, forming a committee, in October of 1958. The Men’s Hostel was opened 13 months later in November of 1959. Since opening, the Emergency Shelter has grown in size to 102 beds, our staff is now over 15 and growing, and still increasing the range and depth of social services offered to our guests.
The Catholic Charities Men’s Hostel provides shelter for transient or destitute men, modeling the caring and compassionate spirit of Jesus Christ.
