Cake Walk For many DESC participants, relationships with friends and family have been damaged by mental illness, chemical dependency and the effects of homelessness. Show them the love with a sweet birthday treat. Each month we celebrate birthdays on the last Wednesday of the month. Bring us some delicious treats to share with 50 of our closest friends. Please email our Volunteer and In Kind Gifts Officer to sign up to bring treats this month.
File-o-rama We are being buried in paperwork and only you can save the day! You will assist our clinical and administrative team with alpha sorting and filing. This supports us to use our time and talents doing what we do best, ending homelessness, one person at a time. It keeps our administrative costs low and our business end organized. Choose to volunteer as little as an hour or as much as a day. Come once or again and again. Times are available Monday - Friday 8AM - 4:30PM. Please email Client Funds to schedule.
Maintenance Magician Help us move in the next homeless man or woman by assisting us to clean a vacant apartment and complete some basic maintenance projects. Your single day of work assists us to end homelessness sooner for our next resident! Email our Volunteer and In Kind Gifts Officer to complete the volunteer application and schedule your day (or days) of volunteer service.Return to Volunteer page
