Passage Home is looking for volunteers to come to the Safety Club (513 Branch St.) every second Saturday to provide a safe and positive space for growth and recreation for kids while their guardians/parents attend our monthly financial literacy classes. Many of these guardians may not have the resources or the means to provide a suitable environment for their kids while they are away. This fact also tends to limit employment opportunities and access to resources like the DMV or grocery stores. At Passage Home we seek to address poverty through a lens of intersectionality, which necessitates thinking about how all of the consequences of poverty manifest and affect each other. As we are providing resources to parents we want to take into consideration their kids as well. To that end we need volunteers to interact with the children of our clients in a way that is affirmative and encouraging. The activities that take place during this time are up to the actual volunteers but we have a selection of art supplies and other entertaining materials at our facilities. If volunteers have a specific activity that they would like to set up they may contact the Volunteer Coordinator Brandon Williams and ask to have a particular plan in place, if feasible.
