Degage - helping the homeless

March 20, 2018

Degage needs volunteers to help make these outings & activities a success! Below is the current “Wish-list” of needs: 
  • Volunteer Chaperones for Thursday outings (public museum, Griffin’s game & more. Dates TBA)
  • Do you have a van that can help us transport patrons to events?
  • Do you have a skill/talent you’d like to teach our patrons? Maybe a cooking or baking class?

Games like Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud, or Jeopardy have been such a hit in the dining room! If this sounds like fun for your small group, family, friends or volunteer team please let Holly know!

Hygiene Desk 
Wednesdays, 8:00am-11:30am 
Volunteers assist patrons utilizing our showers, laundry facilities, mail delivery, and lockers. Volunteers in this position will have close interaction with the patrons.

Help Desk
Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday, 8:00am-11:30am 
Volunteers are needed to welcome patrons to the second floor, direct them to services on that floor, and record their visits in the computer.

Volunteer Drivers 
On-call
Several men & women need help getting to various doctor appointments, interviews, and more. At this point, we only reach out if the appointment is outside of the bus-line, but we are exploring ways in which we can utilize volunteers more frequently and effectively. Male drivers are paired with males seeking assistance and women drivers are paired with women.
