HRDC’s Warming Center, founded in 2010, has a simple mission: to ensure that people experiencing homelessness in our community have a place to sleep indoors during the winter months. Volunteers are vital to the success of the Warming Center that opens annually from November 1st to March 31st. The center is open from 7​:00​ PM to 7:00​​ ​AM on Mondays through Saturdays and from 7:00 PM to 10:00 AM on Sundays, and many different evening, late night, and morning shifts are available to provide support to staff in greeting guests, assigning bedding and storage lockers to guests, cleaning the facility, and doing laundry. Because the Warming Center is 100% community funded, volunteer time makes it possible to provide a warm, safe place for our neighbors in need! Volunteering at the Warming Center is a unique, challenging, and rewarding experience where no two nights are ever the same. These are some of the things our volunteers have said about their time at the Warming Center in the past: "It's the relationships that keep me coming back!" "The more time I spent volunteering, the more guests become real people that I have grown to know and really care about. You know what? They care about me too!" "Volunteering here in the evening is completely different than what I do during the day. I like that!" "When I leave after a volunteer shift, I feel like I have really contributed." "Volunteering here causes me to learn more about myself." “The Warming Center is a very meaningful place to spend my time. This shelter saves lives.” "I feel like I get more out of volunteering than I give."

RSVP to attend a volunteer orientation on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 PM-7:00 PM at the Warming Center through the end of March by contacting Alyssa Hjelvik at vista@thehrdc.org or (406) 585-4879 if you'd like t​o commit or learn more about helping our neighbors in need.

Latenight Bus Attendants ride around with the bus driver on the Latenight Streamline and ensure the safety of the bus for both the passengers and the driver. Bus attendants make sure that no passenger gets too rowdy, that alcohol remains off the bus altogether, and ensures everyone is going to get where they are going. We want to get our passengers safely home and make sure that they are happy on the bus. If the situation arises, an attendant must also make sure to de-escalate a fight or call the police in case of a fight. Essentially, the attendant is the foremost authority on the bus who must ensure that the flow of the bus is not interrupted in anyway. This means being an enforcer, janitor, or just a friend depending on any given situation. Questions? asmsulatenight@montana.edu
