Volunteers Make the Difference.

About

We're not like other organizations - we work at the level of the streets. Are you an energetic mental health specialist, teacher or youth worker, or former Peace Corps volunteer who likes to be in the thick of it? Are you a self-starter? Our street outreach (STOP) backpack teams serve unstably housed youth in our community with hot drinks, basic needs, access to healthcare or information about referral services. If you've got the moxy to help in a real way, without judgement regarding history, sexuality or race, come join or lead a sidewalk backpack team. Some qualifications required, including a 6 month to 1 year committment. (Tatoos not required, but appreciated).
