There are many benefits to interning and volunteering with Community Shelter Services in addition to doing something good.

At this time, we are limiting on-site volunteers as a precaution to protect against any possible transmission of COVID-19. If you are interested in volunteer or service project opportunities, please contact our offices at Call (814) 455-4369 or email us for more information and to discuss how we can work with you.

As a volunteer, you will have the chance to learn new skills, gain experience in new areas, and discover new things about yourself. Volunteers and interns are essential to fulfilling our mission to house the homeless. Your time and effort benefit both client and the organization. As a volunteer, you can feel your contribution of time and talent does good for your community.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have currently limited our on-site volunteer program. If you would like to help out during this time, please fill out a volunteer application by clicking here. Once you have filled out the form please apply for Act 33 and Act 34 clearances to volunteer at our shelter. Links to clearances can be found in the orange box on the right of this screen. Once we receive your form, we will be in touch.
