COVID Protocols
Mandatory COVID Protocols will be in place to keep our guests and volunteers safe:
  • Rapid testing for everyone at the shelter - guests & volunteers - with separate areas for those waiting for test results and alternative quarantine and shelter locations for those that test positive
  • Masks and other PPE
  • Reduction in shelter capacity to accommodate distancing
  • Meals will be served "cot-side" vs. dining together in groups
  • Volunteers:  please be sure to arrive at the start of your scheduled shift time to allow for testing time and receive the latest COVID training

 

Want to Volunteer? 

 Let’s be sure that no one dies on the streets of Dallas this winter due to freezing temperatures!

“Watch the volunteer demo video here in advance.Additional training will occur on your first shift at shelter.”
