Let’s put an end to homelessness.
One family at a time...
those in need
Stories from the H.E.A.R.T.
Our teams are in the field and we need your financial support to help those we encounter with housing services. PLEASE DONATE...
Our long standing appreciation for this amazing group of women began when they 'showered' us with $10,000.00 to start the shower program at the CRC in 2012. This generous donation resulted in providing over 6000 showers to our community to get ready for interviews, jobs and doctors appointments.
We are grateful for funds recently awarded to our Susie's House Program. $5,000.00 will go a very long way to helping us help provide or keep a roof over the heads of many families, men, women and children who call our teams for assistance in their time of need. Since 2012, The Women's Fund has supported our efforts to serve those needing support services right here at home. Please help us support them as they support our community.

Lastly, professionalism. You need to be aware that the data you collect is highly confidential and when mishandled can do damage. Although the clients you assist might be in messy circumstances, they are always to be treated with the respect you yourself would admire if in the same circumstances.
Once trained, you will be completing intakes and assessments, making determinations about a client, their health, their honesty, their abilities and their eligibility for various services and benefits. You will also be working with numerous other organizations and people, trying to find the optimal way to help a particular client.
If you decide to volunteer, your first point of contact will be our President, Rene Evans. She will meet with you to get you set up as a volunteer. After that, Rene will connect you to another current volunteer. You will get in touch with that volunteer to set up 2-3 sessions of shadowing them as they do intakes and assessments.
Please be gracious with us if we do not respond or move as quickly as you'd like once you decide to join our team. Remember, we are all volunteers too. We have to maintain the balance in our lives, to support our friends and families as much as we support the CRC and our clients. We must take the time to care for ourselves so we do not burn out. We always need your help and we welcome you.
