Help out at our homeless shelter this winter

Cold days are coming. That is why we are opening the doors of our winter shelter for homeless people in the city. The shelter is for those who cannot find shelter on their own during the persistent cold weather. Come help as a volunteer! 

The winter shelter in the city is at various locations, including homeless shelter AMOC on Stadhouderskade. The shelter offers a warm place mainly to EU residents. Many Eastern European languages are spoken. Visitors can come here for warmth, a place to sleep, food and drink, a hot shower and clothing exchange. The shelter is from December 1, 2022 to April 1, 2023.

What does your work look like?

You work in a team with other volunteers! It’s a practical and active job. Together you provide a relaxed and good atmosphere. You pour coffee and tea, spread sandwiches and help with meals and serving. You will also help with cleaning and preparing the beds.

Knowledge and skills

Experience is nice but not necessary. We find it especially important that you have a positive attitude and enjoy helping others. You are open minded and respectful of cultural differences and different values. You can work practically, like to help and like a good atmosphere. Do you also speak English and/or Dutch or another Eastern European language? That's absolutely great! We love that we can count on you!


De Regenboog Groep is a member of the Vrijwilligersacademie. As a Regenboog volunteer, you have free access to the full range of training.

What do you get in return?

You are part of a social non-profit organization. You meet a lot of different people and can mean something to Amsterdam residents. In short, you get a fun, challenging and educational volunteer job.

Added value

It expands your world! You meet people you would never have met otherwise and you develop yourself. And last but not least: you have contact with people you can really help!

Working hours

Your shift is in the evening from 20:30 to 23:00 and/or in the morning from 07:00 to about 10:00. We could really use your help on weekdays and weekends! Shifts are by mutual agreement.
Where? Homeless shelter AMOC, Stadhouderskade 159, 1074 BC Amsterdam
