Volunteer Opportunities

Health Assessment Volunteers

*If you are healthy, not in a risk factor group and are comfortable with the proximity this opportunity requires, please consider helping during this difficult time.

We are in need of additional volunteers to continue doing health assessments on each man as they enter the emergency shelter 4:45pm to 8pm. You will be trained and given gloves and masks. We are now at our new shelter location, Warner Park Rec Center at 1625 Northport Drive Madison. We will be spending 5 minutes with each guest, asking questions prepared by public health, and then triaging them based on answers and hotline nurse response. Email Kim Sutter at ksutter@porchlightinc.org if seriously interested. Thank you.

Lend Your Skill in Graphic Arts (year-round, individuals)

Porchlight is seeking talented, creative artists and graphic designers for a variety of projects throughout the year.  Volunteers can set their own schedules and control their own creative process.  There are no training requirements.  Volunteers meet with staff at the beginning of the project, then work independently.  If you would like to lend your talents to a worthy cause, this opportunity is for you!

Make a House a Home (starting June 1st)

This opportunity is great for groups who want to be of service to families and individuals who are transitioning from homelessness into Porchlight’s scattered site affordable housing.  Volunteer groups help prepare units for their new tenants to arrive.  Tasks may include cleaning, painting, landscaping, and any other general upkeep needed to turn a house into a home.

If you have any particular skills that you do not see listed above and wonder if you could be of service to Porchlight, please contact Jessica Mathis at (608) 257-2534 ext. 20 or .
