Volunteers Urgently Needed

One-on-One Client Advocates
Advocacy workers go with clients to any meeting or service the client is having difficulty navigating on her own, such as court or social services. An advocate always looks out for the client’s best interest and teaches the client how to stand up for herself. Advocates will also call and check in on clients and build relationships with them.
Next Advocate Training: Thursday, April 17th, 7pm – 9pm
CLICK HERE to register.

24/7 Talk-Line Workers

Our 24/7 talk-line phone number is distributed to individuals we speak with during street outreach and internet outreach. It provides a safe way for these clients to call and talk with someone and/or request assistance, and callers are directed to our drop-in center where they can receive additional services.
