An innovative aspect of the Bunkhouse is the utilization of the rooms for two shifts - day and night. The night bunkhouse shift is from 7:00 pm to 6:30 am, and is designed for day workers. The day bunkhouse shift is from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm and is designed for night workers.
Currently the day program is not open, SHARE/WHEEL will be having a reopening meeting at the SHARE Office at 9:30 am on Monday February 27, 2017.
The Bunkhouse is self-managed with the Participants doing chores and SHARE meetings. The Participants also provide security for the Bunkhouse in the form of sitting Firewatch for 3 hour shifts. This has been a challenge for the days program as night workers need to be able to sleep during the day.
SHARE/WHEEL is going in a different direction with this reopening attempt. We are attempting to get volunteers from the greater SHARE Community to Come and do the Firewatch shifts Monday - Friday. Bunkhouse Days Participants will be responsible for doing the following on the weekend; having representation at the SHARE Power Lunch at Noon on Saturday, Wash the Shelter blankets on Saturday night and Firewatch shifts. Bunkhouse Days Participants will also be responsible for Screening new Participates in during the week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
If you have any questions please call SHARE voicemail at 206-517-9011
