Volunteer at Randy Sams Outreach Shelter today

Randy Sams Outreach Shelter, Inc is a low-barrier homeless shelter. Upon entering, we assign our residents a locker and a bed and help them get settled in. Our goal is to help those who visit us regain a stable source of income and permanent housing in 90 days or less. We also help them meet whatever additional goals they set for themselves in their sessions with our Residential Case Manager.

During their stay, our residents will have access to:

  • Life skills classes
  • Financial assistance and job training programs
  • Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous programs
  • Church services
  • Financial Assistance Planning
  • Residential Case Management
  • Application to Rapid Rehousing through Doorways
  • Local and Long Distance Transportation
  • Computer Lab
  • Resource Acquisition

Residents are required to pass a breathalyzer screening upon initial and subsequent entry daily. Random, periodic drug testing is administered and 3 meals a day, clothing, and laundry service are provided.

We have a rotating chore list that we divide among our residents. At 6 p.m. sharp, we require that everyone be present and accounted for so we can wrap up the day.

ID is NOT required to check in and that new clients can check in around the clock, 7 days per week. We also don't require social security cards or extra changes of clothing.
