The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Mission is to offer refuge, resources, renewal and respsect to the maritime community through multi-faith service.
Seafarers' House is a multi-faith mission and hospitality center for crew members of ships that visit Port Everglades as well as members of the port community. Most who visit Seafarers' House want to make low cost calls on one of the more than 85 phones available or connect via our free wi-fi service. In addition, we offer a small store, free transportation, internet access, access to multi-faith clergy and safe money transfer service. Seafarers' House is open throughout the year as a safe, friendly place where mariners can connect to their families, relax, ask questions about the community, and get emergency help if needed.

I love the opportunity but I never get information back and how to started. I sent them email thought volunteer match and even call them, left a message but not answer. It's really sad because it was an opportunity for all my family to help not just me. Now, will I recommend even if I didn't volunteer with them? Yes. Why? Because, even when I didn't get the opportunity to help I believe it is something should everyone can help with.
