The City of Davis and CommuniCare have formed an innovative partnership to open the Davis Respite Center - a safe space where the unhoused population of Davis can go for essential services like laundry, bathroom/showers, computer access, access to Case Managers who can link them to local services and more.
Respite Center Volunteers begin by offering general support to Respite Center Staff with tasks such as answering the door, monitoring laundry and shower facilities, assisting clients access Respite Center resources and other tasks that support CommuniCare’s mission and the purpose of the Respite Center. Once volunteers have had a chance to become familiar with the resources offered, volunteers will have the opportunity to begin more specialized volunteer roles possibly taking the lead in organizing and coordinating clothing closet distributions, coordinating intake and distribution of food donations, supporting the monthly vet clinics, or working with Respite Center staff to identify and address unmet needs of Respite Center and the clients we serve.
