There is some flexibility with start and end times for your shift. Please be aware that the actual event runs from 11am to 4pm the morning shift starts at 10:30 so that the morning volunteers are ready to go when we open the doors at 11am and the afternoon shift goes to 5pm because some late arriving clients will need assistance after 4pm.

Volunteers assist homeless clients in navigating the services available and help them identify what servcies they'd like to recieve.

In order to provide an integrated system of care Project Homeless Connect focuses on each aspect of homelessness, providing everything from California identification and disability benefits to clean socks and a warm meal. Hundreds of individuals, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies provide PHC and its clients with services such as dental care, eyeglasses, family support, food, HIV testing, housing, hygiene products, medical care, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, SSI benefits, legal advice, voice mail, employment counseling, job placement, wheelchair repair, veterinary services, and more.

We need 300 community volunteers to make this event possible!
