As a Help Desk volunteer, you become one of our front-line workers and establish the
first impression to whoever comes through our doors and/or calls the agency. In
working with FFS, you will interact with a diverse, group of people, personalities,
and life situations. You will have face-to-face and telephone contact with clients
from FFS’s Transitional Housing Programs, Harold’s Help Desk Clients, Donors,
Community Partners and potential Volunteers. When representing FFS, Interns
should always demonstrate professionalism, compassion, and understanding. People
walk-in and call FFS for a number of reasons, therefore it is also the responsibility
of the Help Desk volunteer to determine why someone is here, and strive to have
them leave satisfied. There are other duties we can explain during orientation.
