COVID Community Support Volunteers


Description:

The COVID-19 Recovery Center (CRC) is set up to provide people experiencing homelessness with a place to recover and rest. People experiencing homelessness don’t have places to rest or isolate and, therefore, can’t follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health guidelines. The CRC fills that gap. People who are sick enough to require more intensive care will be referred to the hospital, just like any people who are acutely distressed. Read more and about training for the volunteer roles here. The two volunteer roles are:

  • COVID-19 CRC volunteers: These volunteers assist at the site, provide food, laundry, direction and general support to clients. All shifts are at the East Boulder Rec Center located at 5660 Sioux Dr, Boulder, CO 80303 (the CRC location).
  • Screeners at shelters: These volunteers help screen people for symptoms daily at the homeless shelters. Individuals who are symptomatic will be driven to the CRC by staff drivers each evening. 
Time Commitment:

Shifts are 8 hours at the CRC and 3.5 to 4.5 hours at the shelters (depends on the shelther).
