Hennepin County is seeking volunteers to help with their non-congregate care shelters.  Unlike the traditional sheltering, Hennepin County is housing homeless individuals and families in hotels.  There is no contact made with the shelter residents except for brief contact between the volunteer in the hallway (masked) and the sheltered in their rooms (masked).  These are non-COVID19 clients.  If you can volunteer for a shift please contact Ryan Selock at:
