Opportunity Details

Monitors & Community Liaisons for the Sierra Roots Shelter

Sierra Roots has provided an emergency weather shelter in Nevada City for nine years. Months of operation are typically November through March. This is a life-saving program that is urgently needed during extreme weather events for one of the most vulnerable populations, the chronically homeless people in our community. 

Each time a weather event triggers the need to open, the Sierra Roots Shelter Coordinator must seek the commitment of 18 volunteers for the three shifts per day.

This year the shelter will operate as the joint effort of the Sierra Roots Shelter Collaboration (SIerra Roots, Nevada County, Nevada City, and the VFW Post of NC).  This relationship allows the County to pay stipends for overnight volunteer monitors and community liaisons.

The shelter also must have other urgently needed volunteers that do not include stipends, such as evening monitors, meal makers, and food servers.

The shelter venue is the NC Veterans Hall at 415 N. Pine St, Nevada City.
