Intern OR Volunteer to Help Provide Services to Veterans

We at Passage Home are currently looking for an intern or a volunteer who can work in our SSVF (Supported Services for Veteran Families) department. We are looking for someone who can come in for a few days every week to assist with some data entry and other clerical duties and is proficient with Excel.  It is helpful, though not required, if they are majoring or have majored in the Human Services, Social Work, or related fields as they will also have contact with some of our clients. They would be working directly under two Case Managers who specialize in Veterans Services. The time commitment is roughly ten hours a week for ideally a year. This position may not be fully suitable for an internship as the time commitment which is unlikely to fulfill the minimum hours requirement of most internships. We do have a MSW available on staff to sign off on forms. The volunteer or intern must be consistent with their hours, be comfortable interacting with clients and be able to work alongside and independent of case managers.

To get involved please contact Brandon Williams at bwilliams@passagehome.org

We have a client-based program where community members suffering from poverty can come in or be referred in to have an assessment on their needs. Every client and every case is different, so we assist with an array of services. We have a Workforce Development Department that can provide clients with employability skills, GED classes, trainings, etc. Our Veterans Department is able to serve the homeless veterans population of Wake County. We also have a community garden that grows fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as provides teaching opportunities for community members and children.
