As a volunteer at the Homeless Services Center, I have grown and learned so much from working alongside a team of dedicated staff. You will never find a more genuine and whole-hearted environment to be in. The people are very friendly and you never feel alone. There are a number of volunteer duties to take charge in. From greeting people at the front desk to working in the mail room, all of the things you do are always greatly appreciated and have a greater impact than you might think. The tasks I perform and people I socialize with all add to the incredible efforts that this center does to help fight homelessness.
