Opening Host

At 8:00pm, you open CHAP’s doors, welcome 10 homeless residents inside, invite them to take a hot shower, and chat with them about their day. There is no feeling quite like seeing the smiles on their faces as you help them escape a night on the street and offer them a warm place to sleep.

A typical evening:

  • Unlock the doors and turn on the lights at 8:00pm

  • Chat with homeless residents as they settle in for the night

  • Leave at 10:00pm when the Overnight Host takes over

Time Commitment

  • Most volunteers host at least once a month for 2 hours.

  • CHAP is very flexible, you may take a shift as often or as seldom as you wish
