Position Description

To keep our staff and clients safe and healthy during COVID-19, we must continually screen any guests entering our building. Relying on staff to accomplish this takes away valuable time that can be better spent advocating for clients and ensuring that our programs run smoothly. Because of this, we are in search of volunteers to staff our front desk and screen potential visitors for signs/symptoms of COVID-19.

Tasks/Duties

Volunteers will work in shifts to:

  • Supervise the front desk
  • Remind visitors to wear masks
  • Take and record visitor temperatures
  • Ask and record symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, coughing/sneezing, shortness of breath, and sore throat

Time Commitment

We are currently looking for volunteers every day of the work week, 9am to 5pm. Volunteers are not required to stay for the entire duration, and we can find smaller shifts depending on your availability.

Training

Volunteers will receive information and instructions on how to appropriately complete tasks prior to their first shift.

Benefits

Volunteers can gain service hours and communication experience while ensuring our staff can continue providing high quality services during the pandemic. This opportunity is perfect for students, as you can do school work or reading during slow periods.

If you are interested in this position, please contact our volunteer coordinator Rachel at rcatalano@projectplase.org!

About Project PLASE

Location:

3601 Old Frederick Road, Baltimore, MD 21229, US

Mission Statement

Project PLASE addresses homelessness in Baltimore through our transitional and permanent housing programs coupled with a continuum of housing and services to meet the special physical, mental, and emotional needs of residents. We strive to move individuals from crisis to housing stability by treating, restoring, and rehabilitating the whole person and empowering each individual to function at his or her highest level possible.

Description

The goal of Project PLASE’s transitional housing program is to house and serve homeless citizens in 24-hour supported supervision and case management with a focus on helping the individual function at the highest level.

We provide residents with three meals daily plus snacks, linens, bus tokens, assistance with medical appointments, and clothing as needed - making it easier for residents to focus on getting back on their feet.

Each resident is assigned a counselor for assistance and support. Active case management is given to assist the individual to meet his/her needs, move beyond their crisis situation, and avail him/herself of community based services and resources as appropriate.
