Our Vision: Ending homelessness one person at a time.
The Sulzbacher Center's comprehensive programs include street outreach, food, shelter, case management support, job placement assistance, substance abuse counseling, medical, psychiatric, dental and vision care as well as scattered-site housing. Everyday the center is home to more than three hundred homeless men, women and children from our community.
Please note that the previous review is incorrect. To volunteer at this center you do NOT have to pay anything. The $300 is for Volunteer Groups which is something different than individuals volunteering. I do know someone that has volunteered here and they found it very rewarding!
I was sadly disheartened when I saw this volunteer opportunity that I think would be very rewarding, empowering and valuable experience, but for whom? Only those that can pay $300 or more. There is something wrong about this. And I am sure that the services provided may be very good for the community, but this kind of volunteering smells fishy to me. I was going to refer a friend to this site but not now.
Maybe I am being too critical, but I that the homeless being served by people that pay to in part make themselves feel good about themselves or their group would be transparent to those getting served behind the counter. Plus what about those just rising above poverty and who maybe were in the same food line before and want to volunteer. There is some disconnect here. I don't mean to rant, I rarely do. May better categorization could be used in volunteer ad.
