Posted by Catholic Charities Project SERVE: The Weinberg Housing and Resource Center (WHRC) is a low barrier emergency shelter that provides homeless services to over 275 adult men and women each night in the City of Baltimore. Our services include shelter, convalescent care, breakfast and dinner, showers, laundry, case management and a variety of life skills and empowerment classes – with a focused goal of assisting residents in obtaining permanent housing.
Catholic Charities Project SERVE is seeking a volunteer to aid with the coordination of the volunteer program at WHRC, including placing volunteers in meal service, Administrative Services, Client Programming, Case Management Services and the Volunteer Resident Monitor (VRM) Program. The meal program serves over 400 meals each day for breakfast and dinner. The VRM program is a combination of a workforce development and self-esteem-building program for the residents of WHRC.
As members of Catholic Charities Project SERVE, volunteers live together in intentional community under the shared commitment of living out Catholic Charities’ mission to cherish the divine within all. Throughout the year, volunteers will reflect and challenge one another to grow in simple and sustainable living practices, commitment to social justice, and growing spiritually. Volunteers receive free housing, health insurance, transportation, and a stipend for food and living expenses.
