Volunteer Opportunities


With the closure of Ryandale Shelter for the Homeless, and the continued operation of the Transition House, the Board is re-thinking the role that volunteers will play in the ongoing operation.

In the meantime, there are many ways to help people struggling with homelessness and one way is with the gift of your time.  Homeless shelters are always looking for volunteers to help around the shelter and support their front-line staff and residents. Responsibilities include welcoming and socializing with residents in a friendly and non-judgmental manner, as well as minor cleaning and maintenance tasks.  We encourage you to volunteer at a local Homeless Shelter.

We will post any Transition House volunteer opportunities as they become available.


In the operation of the Transition House, we appreciate donations of men’s clothing, food, bedding, household items, toiletries, and cash – click here to donate funds to Ryandale either directly or online. Ryandale  is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization and is able to provide charitable tax receipts.
