If a virtual response is not possible, DAT response procedures will require maintaining social distancing (6 feet apart) and provide materials to the client without direct personal contact.

Requirements and Commitment:
Must be age 18+, commit to 24 on-call volunteer hours per month and training to serve in the role.
