Volunteer Program Statement

The Volunteer Program at Project PLASE seeks to place volunteers in meaningful positions in which they will help to support Project PLASE’s mission by supplementing our resources. Through mission centered service, the Volunteer Program should expose participants to the issue of homelessness. In order to protect both volunteers and clients, staff involvement is required for a successful program; this includes ongoing supervision and dialogue.
