Have time available this summer? Have an outgoing personality and like interacting with people? As LA County starts to reopen, we are going back to our normal services as well and we need help! We are a community resource center in Inglewood serving the local LAX community's poverty-level families by providing many services such as, food and diapers to families, sack lunches, hygiene kits and showers to homeless, and financial assistance to families in need. While it is necessary for us to go back to normal, we also need to ensure we meet the necessary precautions for Covid-19. We need volunteers to help direct clients to ensure with physical distancing by limiting client flow in the lobby and taking their temperature. We have several shifts available. Our hours are 8:30-5pm, (closed for lunch, noon to 1pm), on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Two shifts available, 9-12pm or 1-4pm. (Bilingual helpful)
St. Margaret's Center's goal is to provide relief, dignity and support to low-income persons in crisis and to assist individuals through case management and skills development to become more self-sufficient and to achieve economic security
St. Margaret's Center, a program of Catholic Charities of Los Angeles Inc., has served low-income and homeless families since 1987. The Center provides a comprehensive range of emergency and supportive services to more than 10,000 unduplicated individuals annually in the Los Angeles "L.A.X." area, primarily those living in the cities or streets of Lennox and surrounding communities.
St. Margaret's Center's mission has remained the same throughout its history, but the Center's programs have grown and evolved to respond to the needs of the community. St. Margaret's Center's programs target individuals and families who live at or below the poverty level. Programs are offered in both English and Spanish, and are free of charge, with the exception of nominal fees for immigration and counseling services. The Center provides assistance to anyone in need, regardless of the person's race, national origin or religious affiliation.
