Thank you for your interest in being part of the solution!
We are working to develop a team of volunteers that will not only support the day-to-day functions of the Collaborative but also support our families and individuals making the transition out of homelessness. We are hoping to have our volunteer program fully developed by January 2018. Your replies to this Survey will help us make the best match for you. Thank you for your interest in being part of the solution!
In the meantime, The Warming Center is currently in need of volunteers as they prepare to open their doors on November 1, 2017. Here is a message from Mark Schimpf, The Warming Center Coordinator:
The La Crosse Community Warming Center (413 3rd Street S) is an emergency shelter that is open November 1st through April 30th, 7:00pm-8:00am daily. We serve around 40 homeless adults per night, while fostering an environment of compassion and hospitality. Volunteering at the Warming Center offers the opportunity to serve those most in need in our community and to make a difference in their lives through kindness and compassion. We have a wide variety of volunteer roles available, from direct roles in shelter to supportive roles, and I believe that we can find a role here to fit your schedule, your skills, and what you would like to get out of the experience. Training and on-going support is provided.

The Warming Center is also looking for help with providing evening meals:
