Welcome and thank you for your interest in
Indy Homeless Connect, Friday, March 20, 2009!
Indy Homeless Connect is a one-day community event connecting the homeless community of Indianapolis to available resources and services, while raising awareness within the community on the issue of homelessness. With the help of volunteers like you, this event will offer a number of services to those experiencing homelessness, including medical care, food, legal advice, free phone calls to family, employment services, and housing. While some services at Indy Homeless Connect must be performed by professionals, there are a number of areas where we need volunteer support - and a great deal of it!
The deadline for volunteer registration is March 13, 2009.
Key volunteer information you should know:
1. SHIFTS: There are many different types of shifts to select from. Shifts are available in five and a half hour increments in both the morning and the afternoon.
