Nearly 100 volunteers are needed for Project Homeless Connect Norfolk to take place, and there are several different volunteer opportunities available for individuals and groups to take part in. Interested in getting a group together to volunteer? Volunteering at Project Homeless Connect Norfolk is a great way for businesses, schools, churches, and sports teams to come together and do some meaningful team building, and give back to their community at the same time.

In order to ensure the safety of all volunteers and individuals receiving services, all volunteers are required to attend a mandatory training. Volunteers must be at least 19 years of age, unless they have a signed release from their parent or guardian. Please check back for information on the volunteer training.
