About Volunteering

          Thank you for your interest in becoming a CSSH shelter volunteer! Our Code Blue shelter is CSSH's core service to our unsheltered neighbors in Central Bucks, and it is central to our mission. Without a large group of trained volunteers, our shelter cannot open, and our mission will fail. For the last two seasons during the COVID-19 pandemic, CSSH operated our shelter on a reduced roster of volunteers. Of course, this meant that our active volunteers had to cover shelter shifts night after night - a model that is not sustainable year after year. This fall, we hope to increase our registered, trained volunteer roster by 50% , thus lightening the load so that many more can share the work, and none are overburdened.

          Volunteering in the CSSH Code Blue shelter is an incredibly rewarding and an impactful way to give back. Shelter service is safe, because we adhere to CDC guidance and safety protocols. Believe it or not, our shelter is a warm and friendly place to spend a few hours doing good for those in need. If you are interested in learning more about joining our work, please consider taking our Volunteer Shelter Training. Check below for further information.



To Be a Code Blue Volunteer:

All volunteers must attend a  Volunteer Shelter Training session. You can find the dates and times for these sessions under the "New Volunteer Training" tab below. Most of the training sessions are scheduled for the fall, with one in January. The dates and times are posted by September. We also offer on-line training which you will find under the same tab.


Step One: Choose the most convenient date, and click on the link to register for the session. 

If you need assistance call 866-390-0291 ex 0, leave a message and your call will be returned by Cara.


Step Two: Attend the training session where you will learn how the shelter operates.

All volunteers must complete a background check before volunteering, and register an account on our volunteer software. Information at training will guide you through these steps.


Step Three: Once you have been confirmed by our staff, you may sign-up to volunteer.
