Furnishing Friendship

The “Furnishing Friendship” program provides volunteers with the opportunity to assist in the process of making the client’s new space feel like home. Most people are familiar with the stress of moving, but for our clients this stress is often compounded by the fact that they may be moving in without basic items. Volunteer groups can establish a Furnishing Friendship which entails being matched with a client and then agreeing to collect household items over time in preparation for their move-in date. It is our hope that through this partnership with the community we will be able to overcome what is often one of the first barriers faced by our newly housed clients.

Good Neighbor Program

Through the “Good Neighbor Program” groups or individuals can play a role in helping our newly housed clients get involved in their new neighborhoods. Volunteers can help clients with practicing life skills, navigating their new neighborhood, and by attending community events. By encouraging community involvement we hope to keep our clients engaged with their community and continually housed, ending their homelessness for good.

PLACEMENT

Once you have completed your Campus Tour and have determined where you would like to serve, you will be partnered with a staff member for hands-on training and help to acclimate to Campus culture and procedures.

TRAINING

In addition to the hands-on training in your specific area, there will be a engagement tools training to help you learn how to better serve our clients on Campus.  Everyone receives training on our history, services, campus flow, and our clientele.
