You will assist with seeking sponsors, venues and developing a variety of fund raising packages. You will train new volunteers in all aspects of fund raising. Our mission is to provide safe accommodations and comprehensive supplemental services to youth displaced by homelessness and transience.

Our organizational values encompass a strength-based person approach that recognizes the strengths and unique attributes of our clients. Our concept is to meet our youth clients "where they are", accepting and embracing their own indigenous cultural beliefs and practices, acting only in a capacity of assistance, not judgment.

DHC is looking for a volunteer coordinator who will assist our Community Outreach Director with volunteer tracking and database management as well as programmatic organization tasks. In addition, the coordinator will assist the Volunteer Team with day-to-day volunteer coordination. This candidate will be a key member of the Volunteer Program and the overall Development Department throughout the Fall.
