Though there are numerous ways you can volunteer at Our Common Ground, you should know a few things first. One, we are a community. And as a community, we hope that many of our day-to-day needs, such as making coffee, cleaning up, getting supplies, and just helping out, are met by the community, rather than a dedicated group of volunteers. Two, we are very relational. The folks that we see throughout the week, and that visit the hospitality space, are our friends and neighbors. And because of that we can be a little protective. And third, because of all of this, we ask that you sit down and chat with one of us before you volunteer. That way, you can learn more about our philosophy and why we do what we do, and we can get to know you a little more as well.
Current Volunteer Needs
Hospitality Space Volunteer
We are looking for a few people willing to spend time here in the mornings while we are open. Your primary task is to be a welcoming presence at the hospitality space. To let everyone who comes in know that they matter. This also included participating in community activities and tasks, as well as occasionally overseeing those things as well. Come hang out with us!
On Call Volunteers
Sometimes needs arise. That is the nature of what we do. Maybe someone needs a ride to pick up a prescription. Or help with a job application. Or maybe we need a hand painting or repairing something. Whatever it may be, we are looking for a small group of people willing to be contacted should something arise and help is needed.
Not sure about any of this, or just want to hear more? There are other ways that you can help. Let's chat!
As is the nature of a new community, other volunteer needs will surly arise as we listen to the folks that join us, and ask how we best can help our friends and neighbors in Everett. Please check back to learn more about how you can get involved!
