Skilled Labor Volunteers

We are incredibly grateful to individuals and groups who offer their time and professional services to Water Street. Please contact the Volunteer Office to see what opportunities may be available in your area of expertise.

In the event that we do not have a project that matches the needs/goals of your group, please let us know if we may contact you at a later date if a project becomes available.

Due to limited staffing on evenings and weekends, opportunities are currently only offered during weekday business hours.

Winter Weekend Day Shelter

Winter Weekend Day Shelter

The Winter Weekend Day Shelter (WWDS) is a safe and warm place for our Guests to stay during the day on Saturdays and Sundays when other options are not available. It is a unique opportunity for a group to come get to know our Guests without a longer-term commitment.

Help us create a fun atmosphere where Water Street Guests feel valued. Simply be a presence to connect and engage with Guests, or create activities to have fun together!
