Homeless shelter help ( volunteering )

I've never got involved with helping the homeless, and I have decided that I would like to do something to help and wanted to explore this idea.

I don't speak German, but I wondered if there was a shelter in Bern or Zurich or perhaps elsewhere where I could be of some use. I have no idea in what capacity right now, but want to explore this idea.

My lack of lingo skills might be a problem, does anyone have any suggestions ?

Re: Homeless shelter help ( volunteering )

Most communities in Switzerland have effective solutions for the homeless.

But you could look at Benevol which is active in the eastern end of Switzerland, http://www.benevol.ch/index.php?id=254

We don't have many homeless ex-pats, so you'll just have to learn German.
