Street Outreach Volunteers Needed

Open Opportunity

About

Attention Homes is in need of more volunteers for our Street Outreach Program. Shifts will be M-F during the day. Volunteers must commit to a once a week, 2 hour shift OR be on the sublist. Here is a brief summary of what Outreach looks like right now as well as the separate opportunity of Transportation. If you are interested or have any questions, please let me know!
 
Purpose of Street Outreach: "The purpose of outreach engagement is to build trust and rapport, encouraging the use of appropriate services for youth and connecting them with service providers including ourselves. Attention Homes Street Outreach Team is often the first point of contact for youth accessing our services."
