Prevent Homelessness



UCEF is in need of regular volunteers to work one-on-one with clients in the office. The available shifts are Tuesday, Thursday or Friday  from 10:30 to 12:15. Volunteers typically work two shifts a month.  

For more information: call 206-524-7885.

​Would you like to help UCEF but don't have the daytime availability to volunteer on a regular basis? Consider hosting a donation drive. 

You can host a drive one time or on a recurring basis. They're a great activity to do at the office, school, with sports teams, or wherever you're spending time with a generous group of folks in your life.

    • ​These are typically brown paper bags containing the following items:
    • Water
    • Juice
    • Chips or crackers
    • Granola bars
    • Non-perishable fruit (apple sauce or fruit cups)
    • A plastic spoon if necessary
    • Small candy
  • Hygiene Kits
    • ​These are typically large ziplock bags containing travel size versions of the following items:
    • Toothpaste

    • Menstrual products 
    • Chapstick
    • Socks
  • Gloves, hats, and other winter items during the winter months

Please call 206-524-7885 before setting up a drive to inquire about logistics and what items are most needed.
