Description
To serve for this project, you MUST register separately through the Organizer's Website at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1rKSwaSYAkdLxLYFA3pnFcnaFHH_XmsP8HyZw1GuURuU/viewform.

The day is possible due to the help of many volunteers.  During Homeless Resource Day, students from Montgomery College, the University of Maryland School of Nursing and community members volunteer.  They assist in various roles-one of the most rewarding is serving as a guide to escort  homeless guests through the facility helping them navigate services, vendors and exhibits.  Some of the comments last year were:

"I think what you people are doing for the homeless is wonderful; I am very thankful, my guide was awesome."

"People respected my dignity and my guide from the University of Maryland kept me focused."

"The guide was fabulous; she was extremely helpful and patient."

Volunteers under 18 years old must be accompanied by parent, guardian or teacher.

All new volunteers are required to complete the on-line training or attend the in-person training scheduled Wednesday, November 4, at 401 Hungerford Drive, 1st Floor Tan conference room, 6:00-7:30p, Rockville, Maryland. Please check website for details at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/HRD. In some instances, students will receive in-class training. Details will be sent to you by email.

Thank you again for volunteering to help those experiencing homelessness or those at risk of homelessness in Montgomery County and we look forward to working with you.
