18 people are interested
We are looking for a musician, dancer, yoga instructor or artist to facilitate activities with homeless individuals residing in our Anaheim shelter. We welcome a wide variety of arts! This can be an individual or group volunteering opportunity.
All of the clients who reside in our shelter have been living in the streets and referred to us from various organizations. Everyone is given a bed, food, clothing & other necessities. They have a wide range of conditions that will be addressed by our behavioral health and case management staff. We find that our clients are bored throughout the day and could use some fun and engaging activities to keep them motivated.
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 a lot of flexibility at our site 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.
About Illumination Foundation
2691 Richter Ave., Suite 107, Irvine, CA 92606, US
The Illumination Foundation (IF) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3), non-denominational, grassroots organization that addresses the crisis of homelessness in Orange County through integrated services that provide appropriate solutions.
Experts on homelessness within Orange County agree that it has reached crisis proportions, and that there are not enough resources designated for chronic and emergency programs. With that understanding, IF was founded in late 2007 to effectively lower the barriers for Orange County's homeless population to access existing resources and services. In July 2008 IF launched the "Pre-Transitional Housing and Wrap-Around Program", a comprehensive program that houses and supports homeless families with children in motels in Orange County. IF was established within the UC Irvine Health Care Executive MBA Program as a non-profit public charity organization. Today, IF's governing board consists of community leaders in medicine, nursing, social work, information technology and education.Illuminate lives by bridging the gaps in existing services for the most underserved to break or prevent the cycle of homelessness in Orange County.
We offer a low-entry threshold to provide a safety net for all homeless families with children.
We connect homeless or at-risk families and individuals with services they are eligible to receive.
We foster rehabilitation by empowering adults to become self-sufficient; and inspiring children to grow into independent, productive adults.
We'll work with your schedule.
