In this role, volunteers provide administrative support to our nurses' station by buzzing people into our building during office hours, answering phones and delivering messages to the appropriate departments, and assisting patients with making phone calls. This role is pivotal in maintaining smooth operations on our respite floor. It also provides prospective volunteers with the opportunity to experience a respite unit firsthand and engage with our patients on the unit. Currently, our biggest opportunities to volunteer are weekends, especially Saturdays, but we welcome volunteers to check in periodically to see what shifts are available.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please create an account at this address: christhouse.volunteerhub.com. Our Volunteer Manager will reach out shortly to schedule an in-person orientation and activate your account so you can sign up for shifts. You can also reach out to our Volunteer Manager at volunteers@christhouse.org for additional information.

About CHRIST HOUSE

Location:

1717 COLUMBIA RD NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20009, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Christ House is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for people experiencing homelessness with acute medical needs in the District of Columbia and to offer assistance in addressing critical issues to help break the cycle of homelessness.

Description

Christ House opened in December 1985 as the first 24-hour residential medical facility for homeless persons in the United States. Today, Christ House is the largest facility of its kind in Washington, DC. Since our inception, we have had over 9,500 patient admissions.

Patients are admitted to Christ House from area hospitals, shelters, clinics, and medical outreach projects. They suffer from a variety of illnesses and injuries including cancer, hypertension and stroke, liver disease, kidney failure, diabetes and related amputations, HIV/AIDS, respiratory disease, major lacerations, fractures, and ulcerations of the skin. Many are malnourished, anemic, depressed, and desperately disconnected from healthy sources of support.
