Volunteer - We Need Your Help!


Prospective Volunteers must be fingerprinted. Volunteers are requested to commit to at least 3 months of scheduled dates due to the fingerprinting requirement. Please indicate which months you are available to volunteer when you express interest via VolunteerMatch.

The Source is a free event hosted at Central Library once a month and is aimed at providing essential services to community members experiencing homelessness. The Source brings community agencies together in one location to facilitate emergency shelter needs, DMV services, veteran services, health care services, CES housing, and more.

Volunteers will serve at the registration and refreshment tables, as ushers to guide patrons from room to room, as runners to assist staff, and will have other duties as assigned by staff depending on the resources present at each month's event.

The Source is held on the last Tuesday of each month. Volunteers are requested to sign up if they can assist as ongoing volunteers at The Source event from 12:15-3:30 p.m. on the following dates:
