About

Patrons who come in for food or clothing tend to be facing other issues that Skyline cannot directly hep with. Ideally we would like to have a volunteer who is available weekly to sit down with a patron in a private setting and help them find other resources.

Whether a person is looking for a job, a program that assists with medication, utility assistance or something else that might be provided by another agency, the help desk's function would be to connect them to a place that focuses on that particular area.

Internet research would be a big part of this position. An ongoing task would be creating a resource list which other staff members might be able to reference when letting patrons know what options are out there, as well as the requirements for various programs they might be interested in.

The volunteer would be provided with a computer, a phone, and a cubicle for private conversations with patrons. There would also be a small orientation to discuss the way Skyline's programs work and it's relationship with other agencies.

Someone patient, determined, compassionate and organized would be perfect for this job! Bilingual is a plus, as well as someone with experience/knowledge in various social services in OKC.
