Description of the Volunteer Opportunity: 

Home Teams are teams of 2 to 4 volunteers who provide social support to newly-housed clients as they adjust from living on the street to living in a home. This volunteer position is about fostering friendship and strong community ties with people who have experienced homelessness. Our new neighbors may struggle with tasks such as cooking, grocery shopping, making appointments, and enjoying community activities, especially if they have endured years of homelessness. Each team of volunteers spends a minimum of 3 hours a month for 6 months doing community activities with one neighbor. Their role is to provide companionship and friendship.

We train new Home Team volunteers every January and July on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 9am to 4pm.
