Nightshift is a registered, not-for-profit organization, caring for people through outreach, counselling, education, transitional housing as well providing meals.

A few reminders to keep in mind:

  • Please arrive at the side warehouse door by 6:30 pm as the briefing, prayer and organizing the truck begins promptly; the leader will give a brief orientation, discuss/advise of emerging issues and assign duties – you are usually on your way home by 8:30 pm.
  • No photos. Photos are not allowed during event, especially a full-on, identifiable photo of the friends we serve.  This is to protect  privacy as well as our liability from any claims that may occur as a result of a privacy infringement or exploitation.  If photos are requested, we ask the photographer to be sure only the backs of our street friends are showing; photos of the volunteers may be taken – please ask first.   There are opportunities for visiting groups to have their photo taken underneath our NightShift sign.
  • Please dress weather-accordingly and comfortably.  Meals are served outside in a parking lot (from the side of a serving trailer). If it is cold or wet, please ensure that you bring proper and warm attire.  Everyone must wear close-toed shoes (no sandals).
  • Remember!  The Nightshift Team Leader is in charge, he/she is trained and experienced and is well versed on our outreach policies – please remember to fold under the Leader’s direction.
  •  A  board member’s cell phone number will be emailed to the registrants a day or two before the event.
