About the volunteering opportunity

In the context of coping with the challenges and consequences of the Corona pandemic, the project "SuN - Shelter and New Start for People without Shelter" of the Berlin City Mission is aimed in particular at socially particularly disadvantaged, homeless people and people living on the streets.

Within the framework of a 24/7 facility, up to 80 people receive unconditional access to a place to sleep with all-day residence and retreat, to full and regular meals, as well as to hygiene and health care. In addition, the project not only provides a roof over their heads, but also social counselling, psychological counselling, instruction in manual and domestic tasks, work opportunities and leisure activities.

Every day we are happy to have volunteers who help with the preparation, serving and follow-up of the meals.

Your Tasks

Your assignment takes place in the evening. You will assist with meal preparation and serving. After dinner you help in the scullery and clean up. You will get into conversation with our guests. You will also help enforce the current hygiene measures in place regarding the Corona Pandemic.
