There are a number of ways to volunteer your services to the Network, as our needs change rapidly to meet upcoming challenges:
Volunteer for the Rotational Shelter Program
Volunteer in the shelter
Most congregations recruit volunteers from within their community, but few turn away willing hands. If your congregation is not part of the Network, contact us, and we’ll put you in touch with a “Host” Congregation near you.
The Network provides workshops to our homeless guests on career planning and on budgeting. Often, these volunteer presenters are in the Human Relations or Financial fields, but that is not a requirement. Download the Workshop Presenter Application.
On occasion, we need assistance with basic office tasks or Mailings (labeling, stuffing and sorting); compilation of volunteer packets (involves copying & sorting; Typing); some data entry in computer (instruction/supervision provided); occasional assistance with phones. Familiarity with IBM compatible PC’s on a Windows platform would be helpful, but not necessary.
Volunteer for El Nido
As this is a domestic violence safe harbor program, volunteers must be carefully screened. Help is sometimes needed for respite child care, seasonal events, tutoring (both adults and children), donation pick-up, and transportation, to name a few.
To volunteer as a Workshop Presenter, for Office Help, or for El Nido, please fill out our Volunteer Application.
