There are many ways to help eliminate homelessness, and numerous volunteer opportunities for those who want to get involved.
Volunteer with One Roof
Throughout the year, One Roof is interested in interns who can provide assistance in the office and volunteers with professional skills who can conduct surveys. One Roof is also interested in graduate and undergraduate interns for special projects, research, data analysis, etc. Also, during the year, in January and April, One Roof needs a number of volunteers to participate with Point in Time, Cardboard Connect, and Project Homeless Connect.
