   About the Position

Impact Statement
Volunteers continue to make an impact in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our community and world through MCC. MCC Circle of Friends program is working at creative ways to continue to socially connect and support isolated and vulnerable populations while following safe practices.

Circle of Friends is a program in which an MCCO staff person facilitates a group of volunteers as they together form a “circle of friends” around an individual or family transitioning from homelessness and shelter living back into the community.

As one of our donors stated "The world needs MCC now more then ever."

Work with a small group of volunteers (Circle of Friends) to support a woman, man or family as they transition out of homelessness. Circles meet as a group once a week. Circle meetings might include going out for coffee, creating a budget, accessing a food bank, attending a fitness class, etc. Looking for volunteers who are patient, non-judgmental and friendly.
