*We are now recruiting for our Fall 2022 training. Training courses to begin in August 2022*

Doorways is an Arlington-based non-profit agency helping individuals and families create pathways out of homelessness, domestic violence and sexual assault leading to safe, stable and empowered lives. We envision a community where all people live free of violence and have safe and stable housing regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, age, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, abilities, language, or national origin. We see a future without homelessness or domestic and sexual violence.

We are seeking caring individuals to volunteer 8 hours per month (usually two 4-hour shifts) as Coverage Volunteers in our family homeless shelter. Coverage Volunteers respond to requests for shelter, ensure the smooth operation of the shelter and respond to the daily needs of shelter residents. Typical shifts are Saturdays & Sundays 10am-2pm and 2pm-6pm, weekday daytime 7am-11am and weekday evenings 6pm-10pm.

Volunteers must attend 40 hours of in-person training and submit background checks. Training class begins in August 2022. One year commitment required.
