About

We are looking for a social worker, therapist, musician, actor, dancer, or artist to facilitate a form of art therapy with homeless individuals who are recovering at our recuperative care facilities. We welcome a wide variety of arts! This can be an individual or group volunteering opportunity.

All of the clients who reside in the recuperative care facilities have recently been discharged from a hospital and instead of being sent back to the streets, they are given shelter, food, nursing & behavioral health oversight and assistance to find stable housing. They have a wide range of mental health conditions, many have battled addictions and substance use, but all are on the road to recovery. We find that our clients are bored throughout the day and unmotivated to improve their well being on their own.

It would be an amazing service to offer them the opportunity to go through the healing process with the aid of the arts!

We have multiple locations throughout Orange and LA county that could use your skills! We have a lot of flexibility at our sites in terms of hours and days of the week as we are a 24/7 shelter. We just ask that you can commit to coming regularly once a week to establish a routine with the patients in our program.
