We are extremely grateful to have an abundance of volunteers at this time! In fact, we’re a bit overwhelmed by the number of people who want to help us, actually. We are not actively recruiting for volunteers at this time.
If you are still interested in getting on our waiting list, click here to fill out our Volunteer Interest Form. As volunteer shifts open up, our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you for an initial intake and screening.
Description: A companion is literally “someone who breaks bread with another”. Cafe Companions come into the Cafe space to listen, to share a meal, to be a friend inside the Cafe to others who come there for recovery support. Being a Companion is recommended as a first step in getting involved with the Cafe before moving on to other volunteer positions. Required Companion training is provided.
