Volunteer Vaccine Policy

In partnership with the City of Seattle and King County, we are asking all on-site volunteers to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. An on-site volunteer is a volunteer whose commitment requires them to be on-site for longer than 15 minutes such as cooking and serving in the New Horizons kitchen or volunteers working directly in the shelter. Read our Volunteer Vaccine FAQ here.
