Varmestue - et måltid mad

We are looking for volunteers for our day shelter at Istedgade 100.

Our guests are from many countries, so some speak one language and some another language. Many speak either Danish, Rumanian, Polish or Turkish or English. 

Our organisation is called Kirkens Korshær and is a Danish helping organisation that has existed for more than 100 years now.

To be a volunteer your minium age must be 22 years old. No maximum age :-) We have volunteers in all ages from 22 and to 81 years of age at the moment.

We imagine you:

  • Would like to help us 3 hours every 14 days a weekday from 8.15 pm.  to 11.30 am or Sundays from 9.45 am till 1 pm.
  • Are a minimum of 22 years and eg a student, early retirement or pensioner, or somehow have time for a shift at two times a month (you are most welcome to take more shifts but two is minimum).
  • Ready for small practical tasks such as tea / coffee making, putting together some clothes and arranging for towels to hand out to guests wishing a shower.
  • Wish to talk to our guests.
  • Would like to help create a nice and safe atmosphere in our day shelter.

We can offer you:

  • A voluntary work where you make it possible for homeless people to cover basic needs such as having a shower,  resting for a few hours away from street life, and allowing them to spend some time with talk and creative activities.
  • Co-operation with our sweet guests as well as other volunteers and employees.
  • Opportunity to come up with your own ideas for activities you want to do.
  • We have a monthly meeting (volunteers and staff) and excursions to e.g. other shelters.
