Women's Shelter Counselor

Volunteers are needed to provide on-site counseling for women who are temporary guests of the Auxiliary Shelter at The Denver Coliseum. Counseling will be provided in a secure space in the coliseum on a drop-in basis. Shelter staff leads and on-site medical staff will refer appropriate guests for counseling as appropriate and needed. Guests are commonly experiencing high levels of anxiety and depression and are having difficulty coping with their current situation. Some guests are experiencing domestic violence situations and other relationship issues. Please note, high crisis situations and those experiencing chronic and persistent mental illness will be referred to other mental health resources. Qualifications: Volunteers must be a licensed and insure mental health professional in the State of Colorado and pass a background check. Prior experience working with the homeless population is highly valued. Schedule: The shelter is open 24 hours a day. Our highest priority is evening hours from 4 - 8:00 p.m. However, we can be flexible based on volunteer availability.
