Outlined here are opportunities to support Solutions at Work’s efforts to help homeless and poor people achieve self-sufficiency. Solutions at Work is committed to tailoring volunteer opportunities to suit your interests, skills, and availability.

Provide General Office Support
This involves administrative tasks such as answering Solutions at Work’s phones, filing, copying, performing data entry and assisting with large mailings.

Sort Donated Goods
Sort through incoming donations of clothing, toys, books and gear to ensure items meet Solutions at Work’s program standards and organize items for display on shelves and racks.

Transport Donated Goods
Use your own vehicle to pick up donations of clothing, toys, books and gear from individuals and organizations and deliver serviceable clothing that does not meet Solutions at Work’s program standards to organizations such as Goodwill Industries.

Oversee Children’s Play Space
Solutions at Work offers children a cheerful, comfortable and safe place play where children of all ages (and their families) can come and enjoy a book, play with toys and board games, participate in arts and crafts activities, interact and talk with other children, or just relax. Volunteers are needed to help children and their parents/guardians select books and toys to take home, read to children, supervise arts and crafts activities, and to keep the space clean and well-organized.

Translate Marketing Materials
Translate Solutions at Work’s program and marketing materials into Haitian Creole, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, or other languages, and/or to serve as a translator to help Solutions at Work’s staff communicate with program participants in their native language. Solutions at Work welcomes translation assistance in any language that you are fluent in.

Organize a Clothing Drive or Fundraiser
Work closely with Solutions at Work’s staff to design and implement your own clothing drive or fundraiser for the organization.

Assist with Special Projects
Collaborate with staff on special projects such as Solutions at Work’s quarterly newsletter, special events, seasonal clothing inventory change-overs, program facility reorganization/cleaning/painting, or educational workshops/seminars/conferences.
