GET INVOLVED!

Volunteering is vital to the mission of Homeless Connect.  Our volunteers are the loving connection between the homeless and the services provided.

Additionally, we ask all of our volunteers a small donation, but not required.  For the cost of a nice meal, you will help provide resources to put the poor among us on a path to transformation.  As a volunteer sponsor, you will receive a t-shirt to wear on the day of the event, and the joy of serving those most in need in our community.  We invite you to be a part of Homeless Connect 2019 in our effort to end homelessness in Tuscaloosa County

 

Orientation

Will take place the morning of event, by your team leader. Everyone will meet in the front by registration at 7:00 am
