Get Involved

Malden Warming Center is a volunteer-based operation from December 1 to March 31. Every night, our volunteers provide hospitality to our guests throughout the night with the MWC director or assistant director present and available on call.


MWC has various opportunities to volunteer.  The essential positions are much needed currently to keep MWC open on a daily basis.  Every volunteer must submit and pass a CORI background. Volunteers then have access to MWC online schedule and are able to sign up on a regular or as-needed basis. 


Fill out our volunteer form if you are interested and our volunteer coordinator will contact you!
