New York Avenue Men’s Shelter provides emergency shelter every single night of the year. The shelter offers a hot meal, shower, place to stay off the streets, and access to a case manager. Beds are available on a first come, first served basis to some of our most vulnerable neighbors.
Join us to learn more about the reality of homelessness in DC – see a new environment, learn about a typical day at the shelter, ask questions – and help us clean and maintain the inside of the shelter.
All supplies will be provided; volunteers should wear comfortable clothing that they don’t mind getting dirty. Please note that all volunteers under 18 years of age should be accompanied by an adult.
