Volunteers Needed for the 100,000 Homes Campaign - Help End Homelessness

The national 100,000 Homes Campaign is a grassroots effort to find and place the most vulnerable, long-term homeless individuals into 100,000 households across the country by July 2013.  To learn more about the campaign, please click here and be inspired by these powerful videos:

Volunteers are needed to survey people who are experiencing homelessness in shelters and on the streets.  Each survey takes about 10–15 minutes and gathers information about their health and homelessness; those with the most severe health problems will be prioritized for housing and essential services.  If you’d like to volunteer, please contact Jamie Rohe, Homeless Program Coordinator, at ,  919-245-2496.
