Vendor Support

The backbone of our organization, vendor service volunteers work four-hour weekly shifts distributing our newspaper in-office to the men and women who sell it on the street. Must be available one shift M-F either 9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm. The roster is currently full but on call substitutes are needed!

Day/Night-Of Event Volunteer

Join a listserv of night-of volunteers who can sign up to help out with anything from film screenings of our vendor created productions, to theatrical performances to awards ceremonies.

Forum Planning

Help plan quarterly community forums about different topics of homelessness, such as mental health and criminal justice. The forum committee meets on Wednesday evenings 6:30-8pm.

Year-End Celebration Volunteer

Help plan our year-end fundraiser Celebration, a three-hour party showcasing the wonderful work produced by Street Sense artists. The planning committee meets approximately once weekly over the phone with in person meetings closer to the event. This year’s Celebration will be held September 28th, 2017. More details here:

Groups- hold a seminar!

Based on our operations, we do not have group volunteer opportunities. However, please check out the Student Seminar page to book a meaningful discussion with Street Sense vendors and staff about ending homelessness. This opportunity is for groups of all ages!
