23. Volunteer For Follow-Up Programs
A room, an apartment, or house is not enough unless there is also food,
counseling, employment, medical care, and education. Some homeless people,
particularly those who have been on the street for a while, may need help with
fundamental tasks such as paying bills, ballancing a household budget, or
Follow-up programs to give the formerly homeless further advice, counseling,
and other services need volunteers. Check with your local socal service
agencies, religious centers, and transitional housing groups to see what
programs are in place and how your talents and skills can be used.
If nothing exists in your community, contact social services to find our
what would be entailed in starting a program.
