General description

  • Main home
Hi all! We’re looking for someone who would be interested in being a Volunteer Innkeeper at our FP House in Cap Hill in exchange for free accommodation & a few meals.

This volunteer position is intended to provide security and household management for Family Promise’s FP House which provides 24/7 shelter for families with children who are experiencing homelessness. Families are picked with great care and typically, there are a max of 4 families in the house that are working with us to get into stable housing. These families stay anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months or more while in our program so there is no heavy rotation of families. The house environment is very laid back since families have their designated spaces for sleeping/ hanging out.

What would the volunteer do? You’d have 3-4 “shifts” that would require you to be at the house to oversee dinner drop off from 4pm – 9pm, sanitize surfaces once a day, answer the door, general upkeep around the house and you must sleep at the house every night. See link for detailed description.

This would be a good opportunity for:
· someone looking to save some money for a few months & give back to the community while doing so

· Someone looking to explore Denver/Colorado by day

· Someone who is flexible and has a safety net should the opportunity dissolve due to funding

We’re quite flexible so please don’t be afraid to approach us if you’re interested.

I’ve linked the basic requirements / task document here. If you’re interested or you know of someone who would be please reach out via direct message or e-mail .
