They are loved, they matter, and they are known.
A: Night Strike is relatively safe, and we have many people of all ages who come for the evening, however, 6th grade is the minimum age that a person may volunteer at Night Strike. Younger children are required to stay with a responsible adult for the evening. Minors should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
A: Yes. We have established a more robust online registration which includes all of our volunteer jobs. This means you can choose your job prior to Night Strike. Our online registration fills up fast! If you do not register, you may not get a job at Night Strike.
A: We host an orientation from 7:00-8:00pm prior to Night Strike. During that time you will receive essential safety training and direction for all we do in the city and under the bridge that night. Arriving after 7:00pm may mean your job will be reassigned, so come early! If you arrive after 7:15pm, you will have missed essential safety information, and may be excluded from serving guests under the bridge.
A: No. Please do not bring your valuables, extra bags, or backpacks to Night Strike. The staff cannot store them at Liberation Street Church. Please leave valuables at home or in your vehicles. We do not want our guests to be put into situations that create temptation to steal.
A: There are lots of parking options! There is a parking lot on Ankeny between 2nd and the MAX line, or a parking garage on NE Davis and 1st. Or you can look for street parking.
It costs Because People Matter $800 to host Night Strike every week. This covers the “bare bones” cost of food, supplies, permits, and much more. You can help keep Night Strike going by contributing to these costs in a few different ways.
For more information on ways to contribute to Night Strike email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations are accepted on Thursday prior to Night Strike at Liberation Street Church between 3:00-7:00pm.
