Volunteer with the Coalition for the Homeless

Open Opportunity



Shelter Monitoring

The Coalition for the Homeless is the designated independent monitor of the municipal shelter system. Our volunteers assist our Shelter Specialist in performing inspections of more than 350 municipal shelters. A monitor must be 18 years or older, available some evenings and weekends and complete an individual training session. 

Grand Central Food Program

The Grand Central Food Program brings food directly to where hungry and homeless people are: Each night, our fleet of vans delivers life-saving meals of hearty stew, bread, fresh fruit, and juice or milk to approximately 1,000 people at 23 different street sites around New York City. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Grand Central Food Program and distribute food, clothing, blankets and other necessities while raising awareness about the other services provided by Coalition. The vans operate 6:30-9:30 p.m. every night of the year.
