How Can I Help?

There are multiple ways to support the efforts at the Malden Warming Center.  As a community-run, volunteer based organization, we have many ways you can get involved!


We need volunteers to help with transportation; monitoring guests during the center’s hours of operation; preparing hot meals in the evening and morning; and sorting clothes, preparing personal care kits and snack bags.

Due to several important changes, all room monitors must complete an additional training session by Feb 1. This session will help room monitors be better-prepared to handle difficult situations, identify need for and use NARCAN, become abreast to major changes, and more. The trainings are also a good opportunity for those who have never served a room monitor shift and would like to do so.


Saturday, January 8th, 9:00am - 12:00pm

Sunday, January 16th, 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Wednesday, January 19th, 10:00am - 1:00pm

Please click here to sign up.
By Feb 1, ALL room monitors will need to have completed a training session.
If none of these dates work for you, please let us know ASAP:
All sessions will take place at the Malden Warming Center, 529 Eastern Ave.
Training applies to evening monitors and morning monitors.


If you are able, we would also like to offer an opportunity to donate.
