CFH Volunteer Services off to a running start!

In April, Care for the Homeless introduced the new Volunteer Services, where New Yorkers who are housed are connected to those who are homeless in an incredible service learning experience. Within only three months, volunteer services has welcomed John Jay: College of Criminal Justice, The College of Mount Saint Vincent, New York University, United Talent Agency, Children of Promise NYC and several other New York City groups and organizations to serve at our sites and join our cause to end homelessness.  

Volunteers have been involved in almost every facet of our mission such as  walking with us in advocacy during the 2013 AIDS Walk, staffing our health fairs, hosting clothing and toiletry drives and assembly dates, staffing our wellness barbecues and leading our recreational events such as game day at Susan’s Place.

Volunteer individuals have joined the team for long term recurring volunteer positions.  Classic Re-runs, our boutique at Susan’s Place for residence is now permanently staffed and lead by two of our recurring volunteers, Rita Scott and Caryn Quinteros who are our very first long term volunteers and have made one month of regular service with us.

We have kicked off strong, and with the help of volunteers we have much more to come.  Because of our volunteers at Susan’s Place, our transitional residents for women, we are building a library, a restored gym, and an entire Job Readiness and Resident Activities program.  Our biggest anticipation is our large Mural Project where volunteers will cover the wall of Susan’s Place dining room with inspirational art!  There is much to come, if you wish to join the volunteer team or leadership, email us at volunteerservices@cfhnyc.org.
