homeless-streets copyIn 2014, there were over 2,000 homeless men, women, and children in Anne Arundel County.  On Saturday, March 28th, we all have the opportunity to help them.  For the 8th year in a row, the Department of Social Services, in partnership with the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center, is hosting a Homeless Resource Day at Annapolis High School.  This incredible event brings the services of government resources (MVA, Social Security, Social Services), medical and dental professionals, veterans groups, and agencies that support the homeless, all under one roof.

How can you help?  We need guides — volunteers to assist the homeless individuals and families in our county through the maze of services, ensuring that they received all of the support that they need.  How many volunteers do we need — would you believe 450!  So we really need YOU!!  Volunteer for a 4-hour shift or come for the whole day.

A small number of greeters and runners are needed, but the focus is on recruiting our 450 guides.

If you can help the neediest of our community, please click here to register as a volunteer guide.  The feedback from our volunteers is always positive and a very large number come back to help us the next year.  Please note that a short training is required to help you become an effective guide.  More information is on the Department of Social Services website.  So, click the link below.  Your community needs you!
