What We Do

The mission of Transition Projects is to serve people's basic needs as they transition from homelessness to housing. Each year we serve more than 9,000 people. Our service model is simple and effective: Help people meet their basic needs as they transition from homelessness to housing. Because everyone is unique, we tailor specific services to the individual.

Opportunities for service with us

Computer Resource Center Supervisor:

Support Transition Projects residents as they use the Resource Center to work toward employment, housing, or educational goals. Supervise the center, teach basic computer skills and assist the residents as needed. Requires a two hour a week commitment; many time slots open, days, evenings and weekends.

Hygiene Center Assistant

In our newest facility, the Bud Clark Commons, we will have a hygiene center for our clients, including showers, a clothing room, laundry facilities, and more. We need volunteers to help staff facilitate sign-ups for these services, and assist clients by providing hygiene supplies, towels, providing emergency clothing, etc. Requires a minimum 2-hour a week commitment, morning and afternoon shifts available on weekdays.

Special Events

We frequently have fundraising events that require extra volunteer staffing - most notably, the Jean's Place Luncheon in May each year, to raise funds for our women's program, and the Soup for the Soul event in February. Contact our volunteer coordinator to see about special event opportunities.

Meal Provider:

Providing a meal at one of our shelters is our most popular volunteer activity. Every night of the year, volunteers ensure that the residents of our shelters have a wholesome meal. Put together a group of 4 to 8 people who can provide, cook, and serve a meal for 90 homeless persons. Contact our volunteer coordinator to inquire about available dates.
