Frequently asked questions


Can I volunteer for Robes on a regular basis? How do I sign up?

If you would like to volunteer with Robes please email Robes Shelter Coordinator and she will point you in the right direction.


Does Robes want in kind donations?

Many amazing local Business, Churches and individuals contact Robes daily asking if we are in need of second hand clothes, bedding, tinned food and much more. Robes policy when it comes to bedding for the homeless is that it needs to be new and clean.

The shelter does have many more men than woman, there is always a need for good gloves, hats and scarves and toiletries for our guests.

We would ask you to think about what you are giving to the homeless, that it would be something you yourself would be happy to receive. Thanks
