During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Kids Club helps children at Girard Street Family Shelter work on their academic goals and develop other life skills. It provides a safe place for children experiencing homelessness to spend their afternoons with caring adults.
We expect to see 10-15 youth daily, and we try to schedule 3-10 volunteers. Not only is this a great opportunity to work with young children, but it also provides support for their parents who are engaged in ongoing educational opportunities. Volunteers are encouraged to initiate projects and ways to engage youth. Program is held 2x/week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:30-6:30pm. Minimum age is 14.
Specific Tasks: 1. Maintain a safe environment for the children, enforcing program expectations.
2. Work individually or in small groups on engaging activities such as: arts and crafts, reading, role playing, and games.
3. Help children with homework, as needed.
4. Clean-up at the conclusion of Kids Club (put materials away, sweep/mop, etc.)

Community of Hope creates opportunities for low-income families in Washington DC, including those experiencing homelessness, to achieve good health, a stable home, family-sustaining income, and hope.
Community of Hope advances our mission by providing direct services to families, advocating for system change, collaborating with others, and utilizing a person-centered, strengths-based, integrated approach to our work.
Through our five housing programs, we keep families - all along the continuum of homelessness - safe with a roof over their heads. Our case managers give our families the support they need at the most pivotal times and link them to resources such as job referrals, counseling and mentoring programs for their children.
We have three federally-qualified health centers across the District that meet the primary healthcare needs of the un- and under-insured. We provide quality, compassionate care and an outstanding patient experience, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. Our health staff engages our patients to keep DC healthy through affordable and accessible healthcare.
We'll work with your schedule.
