Reception Volunteer - Polk Homeless Coalition

Volunteer Polk

  • 6 people are interested

We need someone to help us with incoming calls! The receptionist will record caller information on a
shared spreadsheet in our system for the appropriate staff member to return the call ASAP. Receptionist
will also monitor messages left on general voicemail line and forward those to the appropriate staff. We
use an internet-based phone system, and all incoming calls will be forwarded to the receptionist during
his/her shift. Receptionist will need his/her own computer with internet access and his/her own cell
phone. Most calls come from persons experiencing homelessness or those who are at imminent risk of
experiencing homelessness. Since these callers are in crisis, empathy and patience are important qualities
for our receptionist!
