Making a Difference


Hospitality House always welcomes volunteers! Volunteers provide much-needed support to our mission and staff at Utah’s Place (the shelter), admin office and Sierra Guest Home (senior housing). As a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, Hospitality House relies heavily on the dedicated involvement of volunteers to succeed in its mission of caring for those in our community in need. Volunteers act as liaisons between the shelter community and the public at large. With limited paid staff members, volunteers play a crucial role in delivering services to our guests.

To become a volunteer or to ask questions about group volunteer opportunities, sign up using the button below, contact volunteer coordinator Jessica Solis-Hernandez at, or give us a call at (530) 615-0852.

Volunteer Orientation/Training: A volunteer orientation and training is offered to introduce new volunteers to the history and operations of Hospitality House, volunteer guidelines and roles. This training will be given prior to beginning your volunteer experience. Small group and private trainings are scheduled frequently, or shadowing a current volunteer is another form of training used in some positions. Please call (530) 615-0852 or email with the words “Volunteer Inquiry” in the subject line.

Please note: Anyone under the age of 18 must be directly supervised by an adult volunteer, and any children who accompany adult volunteers should be at least 14 years old.
