Friendship Place

Ending Homelessness Rebuilding Lives

Our Welcome Center is in need of a volunteer for Wednesdays with a vehicle who can pick up leftover school lunches from Sheridan School (4400 36th Street NW) and drop them off at our Welcome Center (4713 Wisconsin Ave NW). It's about a 1-mile drive from the school to the Welcome Center.
Pick up is at 2pm on Wednesday's from Sheridan School to the Welcome Center. There may be some container transfers from site to site, but otherwise it’s no more than a 30-minute commitment.

Volunteers will need:
- their own vehicle
- a valid drivers license
- good communication skills

About Friendship Place

Location:

4713 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower people experiencing or at risk of homelessness to attain stable housing and to rebuild their lives. Our vision is a DC community and a nation in which every person has a place to call "home."

Description

Friendship Place has a paid staff of more than 100 and serves throughout the DC Metro region, with successful, award-winning programs that have a lasting impact on the lives of more than 2,900 people a year: street outreach, drop-in, free medical and psychiatric clinic, case management, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing, job placement, and specialized programs for veterans and their families. Because of our outstanding outcomes, our program models are studied by government and nonprofit entities all over the country wishing to replicate our success.

Nonetheless, Friendship Place-supported by 26 congregations and more than 300 volunteers a year-retains the feel of a small, caring, neighborhood organization. The most commonly repeated refrain we hear from the people who come to us for help is this: "At other agencies, I felt like a number. At Friendship Place, I’m treated like a human being."
