IMMEDIATE VOLUNTEER NEEDS:
INTAKE LINE – OFFICE WORK
If you are interested in working on the Intake Line we could use your help.
Time commitment: Once a week or every other week. There is a short training and there is opportunity for shadowing on the line so you can get a better idea of what calls are like. The shifts generally last 1-3 hours and can be in the morning or afternoon. The days we need folks are the first and/or third Fridays, and potential for Mondays or Thursdays.
Tasks: Answer phones and make callbacks to clients looking for resources.
