First Tiny Houses at Othello Village

Be part of the movement to eliminate homelessness in Seattle! Join a team of volunteers to set up the Othello Tiny House Village and Encampment. The encampment is scheduled to open March 1st and there is a lot of work to do between now then.

No experience required. Tasks include painting, placing insulation, and tiling the floors of the tiny houses, setting up tent platforms, and other tasks. We are accepting donations of food and drinks for our wonderful volunteer heroes!

Shifts are 9am - noon, 11am - 2pm, and 1pm - 4pm. Feel free to give as much or as little time as you have. There will be a volunteer huddle at 9am, 11am, and 1pm (the start of each shift).

Come prepared for the elements and wear clothes you're willing to get paint on. Thank you for all you do and see you next weekend!
