We need compassionate people who like to offer hope to needy families. Volunteers staffing our help desk give needy families food and clothing. Even more important they direct families to assistance for housing assistance, help for preschool and school age children, teen center activities, financial education, help with asset building, senior housing, and other areas. You will be a member of the assist team for these programs offered to families within our facilities just south of downtown Tucson. Free training is included.
Volunteer shifts are 4 hours: 8:30 - 12:30, and 12:30 - 4:30.
We strengthen children, adults, families and communities by providing help, creating hope and serving all.
